Exploring Cricut - Christmas Challenge

Hi! It's challenge time again at Exploring Cricut. For this week's challenge you are to create a project with a Christmas theme using your Cricut. I chose to create a Christmas card using the Holy Family from Winter Frolic.

I used one of the shepherds for Joseph because I never noticed that there wasn't actually a figure named Joseph on the cartridge. I also used a sandpaper block to rough of Joseph's robe. I then inked his clothing. I hid Mary's face with the gypsy and added a PK face. I think I would make her smaller than 3" as she seems a little larger than the other 2 figures.

The inside of the card has a sentiment from K. Andrew Design.
