Would You Guess Wednesday - Christmas Countdown Edition

Can you believe there are only 8 months left before Christmas! :)
I am so glad that Erica at My Cricut Craft Room is doing a Countdown to Christmas on the 25th of every month so I can work on Christmas Cards all year round.  My goal is to actually send Christmas cards this year and this will help me reach that goal for sure.

Since this month the 25th falls on a Wednesday, there's the added challenge of only using the Feature Keys on the Cricut Cartridges or using a Cricut Cake Cartridge on a paper project.  Today I decided to use the Feature Keys on Art Philosophy.

For bottom layer I used the Combo Feature - Button 32, cut at 3.5
Top layer is <Shift> Button 32, cut at 3.5

I added Stickles to the Twine to string the lights on the Christmas trees.
To finish my card I stamped my sentiment from Pink By Design which says Rockin' around the Christmas Tree.

 With my scraps and negative cuts from the above card I squeezed out a second card.  How fun is that?!  I also used a Pink By Design stamp on this card that says Oh Christmas Tree.
My paper is from a 6x6 Holly Jolly Christmas paper pad by Echo Park.

Please go to My Cricut Craft Room for more Christmas inspiration.
It's never too early to start planning crafty projects for next Christmas. :)

Thanks for stopping by,
