Checking it Twice...500 Follower Prize

Hey Ya'll,
Welcome to day four of our 500+ Follower Celebration!!!  Well, I have another one of my favorite cards of all time to share with you today!  As you may be able to tell by now, Santa's Village Imagine Cartridge is one of my absolute favorites!  I am SO excited with the way this card turned out.
 I used the cartridge to print the papers for this card.  I used the plaid and Ho Ho Ho paper for the mats.  I used a rounded corner punch for everything.  I cut a large scalloped oval in red and a label shape in white.  I also used smaller label shapes for the stamping.  The shapes are from CTMH - Art Philosophy and the stamps and twine are from My Craft Spot.  Santa is cut at a height of 5.00.  I popped all layers and used stickles here and there.
 On the oval, I used peppermint baker's twine (My Craft Spot) and wound it around the the shape.  I also used it to add a bow under the sentiment.  The Believe in magic is also from the My Craft Spot stamps.  I used the cuttlebug on the white label shape.
I kept the inside simple since the papers are so elaborate.  I inked everything with chocolate ink.  I sure loved the way this turned out.  I would love to know what you think of it.  Don't forget to leave a comment today for an extra chance for the Grand Prize of the Cricut Mini, but also one of today's comments will win three card making kits!  Cool Huh?  So... comment away!  How fun is this?!?  Thanks so much for visiting today!

  35. Ok now I am getting esxcited. I know I have nothing to make a card that look like this but with all the info you share i know I can someday. That makes me excited to think I might be able to do this. I have some bakers twine and a cuttlebug. I just have to get used to my cricut and maybe get the other one someday. Atleast by the time I get mine this stuff should all be real cheap ha ha.
