#98 Christmas Cheer - Throwback Thursday Christmas Challenge

Hi everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your summer! Only three weeks to go here before the kids head back to school - can't believe how the summer has flown by! I haven't been getting much crafting done but can't wait to get back in the groove!

Here is a card I created for the latest Throwback Thursday challenge at My Creative Time where the task was to create a project with a Christmas theme using material somehow and an older Cricut cartridge.

I chose to use Christmas Cheer. The tree was cut at 3.5".

I hand cut a piece of burlap into an oval to make a mat for the tree image. A few years ago, I went to a fabric store and purchased a bunch of different cotton fabrics cut in 1/4" yard pieces, then tore them into strips to use as embellishents on my projects. I don't use them much but once in a while, it's fun to go through them to see if they will go with the project I am working on at the time.
