Day 7 - 25 Days of Cricut(Crafting) Holiday Fun

Good morning everyone,
So sorry for the delay in getting this up today.
But….Welcome to Day 7!  Hope you have been enjoying the projects and getting some great tips and holiday inspiration!
Let’s get right to today’s project
deck the halls swirly tree Cricut v-500
Here is the layout with the Cricut Version Cuts. .  The Flower cut was from the Accent Essentials Cartridge. The flourish was something I created, but there are a lot of flourishes in the Cricut arsenal that you could use.

Here is the flower from the Cricut cuts. I cut three layers at 1, 1.25 and 1.50
cricut trees
I cut the trees from The Christmas Cartridge at 7.5” and 5.25”

deck the halls layout-500
Here is the “My Version” layout. These are certainly not “traditional” holiday colors, but I wanted to do something out of the ordinary. The Trees, swirls and “poinsettia” type flower were all files that I created. The Deck the Halls is a word art-digi stamp that I made.
swirl and flower closeup
Here is a close up of the flower and the swirl. The picture is over exposed, so you really can’t see all the glimmer from the glimmer mist on the swirl and the glitter on the flower. But they are very nice.

Here is a close up of the tree. I embossed them with copper, but again, the picture doesn’t really show this too well.
