My sister asked me to make a card for her boss at work and I decided to also make one that could go in the Cooking with the Cricut challenge to not use red and green together. You could use one of the colors on your holiday project, but not both. Be sure to check them out here: http://cookingwithcricut.blogspot.com/
For my card, I used the Gypsy and the Simply Charmed cart to make a shape card with the peppermint candy image. I then cut the wrapper in blue and colored it with a clear glitter pen to make it shimmer. I finally added google eyes and a mouth.
