Creations by AR--3D Fireplace

I am so glad you have stopped by to see my Fireplace card made with a brand new  file from Creations by AR. I was so honored to be asked to be a guest designer for this release. Thanks Adela!

If you have followed my blog for very long, you know I am a newbie to the world of Cricut and SCAL programs. My first real venture into the world of electronic cutter patterns was with Adela's pumpkin file...and boy was I hooked! Not only am I using my Cricut more, but I am learning the SCAL program too! I am not always the most techie person, but I can tell you these files cut like a dream. I can assemble one of her projects in just minutes...and adding the finishing touches is so much fun!

This file includes  the card, wreath, stockings, fire and logs and Santa as well. You can view it HERE.

Adela from Creations by AR has so graciously offered to award one of her new templates to each design team member to give away  for this release. Soooo...that means all you have to do is leave a comment on any one of my AR Creations that I post through Sunday (6 pm PST at the latest) to qualify for my blog's drawing. My winner will be announced Monday morning. Make sure to visit all the blogs to see all the great creations today and tomorrow. I can't wait myself!!!

In this view, you can see the dimension of the card.  You can open the top closure and the card will  flatten out for mailing! Pretty nifty!!!  You can also see that I added a couple little pieces of acetate  to hold up my gold trees on top of the mantle.
I love the logs and fire inside this card....I think that is my favorite part! I found this brick embossing plate in the cake decorating dept at Michaels. It is meant for fondant frosting, but gave a great impression on my cardstock. I also used some of my neglected Martha punches...the fern, tree and reindeer  are all Martha punches. I added some gold pearls and ribbon for the finishing touches.

ETA: Did you know that Tim Holtz has a fade brick embossing folder that would be a perfect touch to this template? Saw it today on my blog hopping.

Using the brick cake template is genius! And I, too, have the SCAL and Cricut but have not even looked into cutting the SVG's. I am not the most computer-savvy person out there! I am sooo jealous!
