Merry Christmas to YOU Blog Hop

1st I would like to say my prayers are with the Families in Conn.

 Hi you all I hope your enjoying the hop this is the card I have done for you all today
 This card started with the squirrel cut off of Jolly Holidays cricut cartridge. I used Liquid Applique to give a real nice 3D effect to my card. It's really cool to use on Christmas cards to give an effect resembling snow or the fluff on a hat.
 First you want to cut out the parts and glue the layers together. The layer cartridges are pretty cool to use because they add cut marks for lining each piece. I use Scotch scrapbooker's liquid glue in case I have to wiggle any of the pieces to fit (dries quick though)(cut out at 3")
 Next you want to put on the liquid applique (mine is from Marvy, you should be able to get it at any scrapbook store). I have added the liquid to the white on the hat and used the heat gun to make the applique effect.
 Add some stickles to dress it up and it looks great on the front of a card. Takes about an hour to get it put together from all the pieces cut out. Easy-peasy.
