Emma's Throwback Challenge

Throwback Thursday Challenge! Christmas Theme Project of YOUR Choice!

Emma's instructions this week were to make a Christmas themed project using the  "Celebrations" Cricut Cartridge.  Well, Celebrations is typically a birthday cartridge, so this really was a challenge!! :)

Here is my project. First I'll attach all the pictures. Below the pictures, I'll list the Cricut cuts from Celebrations (including sizes) and the supplies used.  Enjoy!

the party hat from page 106
became the tree base / tree skirt
the Scallop tag from page 123
became the tree boughs
The tree assembled - can you see
the white glittery tree skirt?

The cuts from "Celebrations":
The "Tree" body/form/tree skirt is the hat tag (p 106) cut @ 6 1/2"
 using the blackout feature
The scallops that form the tree boughs is the round scallop tag (p 123) cut @ RDS 1 1/2" using the blackout feature - cut 8
(the scallops are cut in quarters and assembled to form the tree shape)
The star on top of the tree is the star (p 110) cut @ RDS 1"
The gifts are the presents (p 114) cut @ 1 1/2"
The inside gift (p 114) cut @ 1"
The sentiment tag is the scallop circle tag (p 123) cut @ 1"

The Supplies used:
Card body - white card stock
large mat and tree - DCWV Holiday Collection, Christmas stack 2009
small mat and tree skirt - DCWV glitter stack
white Gelly Roll gel pen
rhinestones are Basics by Kaisercraft
sentiment stamp is Studio G
