Artfully Sent Christmas Card in Two Sizes

All of the "Sentiment Shift" function cards (Thistle color in the booklet) are designed and meant to be cut as a standard size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  Most of the other cards are rather intricate and designed to be cut as a 5" x 7" card.   I have had quite a few customers purchase the Artfully Sent Cartridge that have the original Cricut machine (6" wide).  So I am on a mission to try some of the cards at the smaller size.  Today, I am sharing a card designed by Close To My Heart Consultant, Tricia Johnson.  She shared it on her blog, Create With Tricia.  
5" x 7" card

It is an elegant, yet simple Christmas card. Simple because the Artfully Sent Cartridge does the hard work for you.  You can find this swing card on page 34 of the booklet.  It is shown as a wedding card in the booklet, but simply by adding the inside piece on page 48, it becomes a Christmas card!

This shows both the swing card and the inside piece.

Here are both the 5" x 7" and the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" versions.  As you can see, cutting the card smaller than intended did not affect the image quality.  The wreath was a bit delicate in a few spots, however it was easy to "hide" the spot by adhering a "berry" over the spot.

Please let me know if you have success making cards at the smaller size. 

Pin It!
