Holiday Card Inspiration with Alicia!

Hello, Alicia with you today with more Holiday Celebrations inspiration.   I created several easy cards with my Cricut. Quick Quotes papers cut clean and easy in the electronic die cutting machine.
 Inking all the edges with PowderPuff Chalk Inks really softens the edges and adds the illusion of dimension while they are still very flat cards.
I fell for these unique edged cards that were very easy to assemble.

For the final card(s) I could not pass up the opportunity to create a second card with the negative pieces.  I used the original card as a template to adhere the candy cane pieces perfectly.  I added a couple of die cut sentiments to spice up these simple Cricut cuts.
As you see, I inked the edges of the negatives before gluing them onto the die cut background.  It adds dimension, softens edges and makes the pieces of paper pop!
