Are you ready to start creating Christmas crafts yet? I'm not but I know that a lot of you are already making yule tide cards and crafts. Couple that with the fact that there is this new Holly and Ivy Cricut cartridge that just came out. You know me...I want to try all the new cartridges and see what fun images they offer. This snowflake image I loved a lot. It's kind of ambiguous because it doesn't necessarily make you think of Christmas. Meaning, if you used other colors it would work for other holidays or events. Make it into a fun background for a Birthday card or something like that.
We carry all kinds of Christmas Cricut cartridges, so if you already have this cartridge, shop around and try new things.
For this card I made the patterned cardstock base 4.5" x 4.5" and the snowflake is cut out at 4" with all four layers. Cricut Explore machines have a draw option on them. I used the draw option, however you can't even tell because it is the exact same as the silver over the top, so if you wanted to only cut out two layers and then draw the top one you could easily do that (but if you are cutting out all three layers don't do the drawn one because it's was useless).
NOTE: The images on this cartridge have the draw feature for the top layer so if you wanted to make simple projects with that great detail and not have to glue the third layer this feature is awesome :)
