My 1st Christmas Card~Sample~ with MTC!!

Hi Again All!

I know you are shocked!!!! Two post in one day from me...lol, and maybe a third later on tonight. If not tonight tomorrow, since I will be cooking tonight.

I wanted to share with you my first Christmas card I created using MTC. I'm just getting started with my cards, had to finish sewing first. I made this card using one of the latest features of MTC 3.0, which is still in the BETA stage. I think the final release should be available by December 1st, don't hold me to that, it is left up to the software creator. I just love that I am able to use my Cricut E, with this software, to create and cut. This card was done with the lattice design, and basic shapes. I added a top layer which uses my MS score-board for the criss-cross lattice design. The top border was cut out of green foilboard, and the top accent also uses the MS holly leaf border punch. With a couple of peel-offs which I colored with Copic markers, a bow (May Arts) satin ribbon, and a couple of pearls, my card front was complete. For the inside I used my SU stamp set for the ornament, and a stamp from my stash, (sorry, no name) for the sentiment. This was a quick and easy card to make, once it was designed. Thanks for viewing, and as always comments are greatly appreciate.
