Favourite things...

A few of my favourite things include the Cricut and Christmas, so this project wasn't too difficult to set up. I saw a beautiful picture on the Artfull Crafts blog of a twisted easel Christmas card, and have adapted it to include most elements cut using the Artiste cartridge for the Cricut. The face, ribbon, matchbox, flower, and leaf sprig are just a few of the 700 shapes which the Artiste has loaded on it; you just select the size which you want it to cut and push the button... yes it really IS that easy!
This beautiful card is for another of Heart 2 Heart's September challenges.


  1. You know I will have to lift this one! That is the cutest twisted easel card and the little matchbox is the perfect stopper - you could add a little rolled up money for those special little people (just thinking out loud). So glad you joined us at H2H

    1. Oh Shirley that is a simply BRILLIANT idea! I thought for ages about what to have popping out of the matchbox, and I do live the idea of a music parchment, because I just adore Christmas carols, but some money - either paper or those chocolate gold coins - is a wonderful idea! Thank you!

  2. How caaaaute!!!! Love that little present! Who doesn't LOVE Christmas and the Cricut!!! Thanks for playing along with H2H!

  3. OMG! Awesome and stunning card. Thanks for joining us at Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this design.

  4. So clever!!! I love how you combined all of the cuts on one creation! Great paper choices for these! Thanks for playing along again with us at H2H! :)
