Countdown to Christmas - Another card!

I'm playing catch up ... I am very, very far behind in making my Christmas cards. I hope I don't have to resort to store-bought!  Here is one of the cards I made last night.  Do you like it?

The ornate Merry Christmas swirl is an ornament design from
the Silhouette Online Store, and was cut using my Silhouette
Cameo.  It was very easy to modify the design to cut off the
ornament hanger from the top, and then create a larger circle-
shaped card onto which I adhered the intricate cut.  I tipped
each of the swirls with a red adhesive gem, and tied the joint
of the card with a splash of maraschino and white twine.

Have you gotten the Silhouette Cameo bug-bite yet?  I'll tell you, I love mine even though in the 8 months I've had it, I haven't yet discovered all of its great possibilities.  Yes, I still use my Cricut and its cartridges, and sometimes I craft without turning on a machine. (Impossible, I know!)  

Is a new machine on your Christmas wish list?  I'll be joining the Winter Wonderland Blog Hop tomorrow, so come check out the card I'll make for that occasion.   

DeFiaNtLy DiFfeReNt & CreAtiVeLy Yours,

Really like this one. Looks like it would be easily mass produced. I do want a cameo....almost bought one on Cyber Monday when I found a starter kit shipped for FREE for only $223, but oh well, I didn't.

Hope you are well. Merry Christmas.

Be blessed, Beckie

My new Cameo arrived today!!! My hubby made me open it to check it out, but won't let me play with it - he wants to put it under the tree. It will be a LONG month.
