Carolina Girl (Cely)
I always enjoy making Christmas cards but each year I always choose one to make 8 of the same for family members.  This year I chose one of Doodle Pantry's December Releases called Bethlehem Cut File.  Even though I used two layers of pop-ups for dimension, I can still mail each card with just one stamp.

I'm horrible about getting cards mailed so these cards were mailed the day after Thanksgiving !!!

Doodle Pantry's December Challenge will begin today at noon.  Join in and have the chance to win a GC to the store.

    These are gorgeous. Love the sky and the multi layers. I haven't even opened my files yet but I must take time to make some. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I love that cut file. Your backgrounds are spectacular! Another awesome release from Doodle Pantry. Have a wonderful week!

  5. Cely, you have once again completely outdone yourself. These cards are spectacular. I love your contrasting colors for the scene, but those background colors are simply divine. I really love that you made two of them with the different backgrounds. These just look amazing.

  6. I've outdone yourself!! Love the background and how you used the same file just cut with different color papers!! FANTASTIC!!

  8. You certainly have the artist's eye. I love how you used gradated shades of brown to show more dimension. This is beautiful. I bet your family has a drawerful of Christmas cards saved . . .

    Your cards are gorgeous! Love the purple too. Wonderful dimension and love how the main card is popped up from the white base. And good for you getting them out so early! I hope to work on a few this weekend to get them in the mail as well. At least that's the plan....that usually never happens.

    Spectacular, Cely! I love the layers of the cuts done in different colors of CS. Wonderful framing. :-D

  12. Oh Cely, these are just amazing! I need to try my hand at this. I haven't used a SVG file in - forever. I need to dust off my cricut. =) Because after seeing this I NEED to make some of these! Thanks for the inspiration!
    Hugs, Sarah T
