HIMCR #22 - Mix it Up! - Holiday

I hope everyone is having a great weekend and survived Turkey day!

The challenge this week, the 4th week of the month, is Mix It Up SATURDAY!  This is the week that will change from month to month.  This week officially kicks off Christmas shopping with Black Friday so I decided it would be a great challenge to make Holiday cards or any paper project that is Holiday, ANY Holiday!! You have until Friday, December 2nd to link up your Holiday creation to get entered into the monthly drawing this week.  This is the last week for this months giveaway!

Here's what I came up with:

 Don't forget to check out the Cricut Art Philosophy Bundle Giveaway!

Trees were cut out at 3 3/4", 3 1/4", & 3".
The stamped tree is recommended to cut out at 3 3/4" but I ended up trimming it back a bit.

Sentiment cut out was cut at 1 1/4".

Card Base: SU  Cranberry Crisp 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded) Yeah! and I'm using some retired cardstock!
Card front:   Alway Artichoke 4" X 5 1/4", Greeting of the Season pack by Hobby Lobby 3 3/4" X 5"
Other Cardstock / Paper:  White
Ink:  Cranberry Crisp
Stamps:   CTMH
Accessories: Cricut & Art Philosophy Cartridge, Dollar Tree & All Fall from fancy pants ribbon, rhinestones, and Hologram Glitter Glue

You can see the HIMCR schedule of challenges and guidelines HERE!  Please be sure and follow the few easy guidelines so your creation will get entered into the monthly giveaway!!!

Just a few guidelines: 
1.  The current weekly challenge linky will be up until Friday night at midnight MST.  Be sure and link your creation back to the actual post and not just your blog home page.
2.  When posting your creation on your blog or online gallery please link it back to this challenge.  This helps me to spread the word and the FUN!
3.  Please create something new for the current challenge and NOT use something you've made previously.  However, you can combine a HIMCR challenge with other challenges. It is always fun to complete more than one challenge at a time!
4.  The winner of the monthly giveaway will be posted the 8th of the following month!
5. Have FUN!!
6. Let me know if I forgot something!
