This week at Fantabulous Cricut, the theme is Christmas in July! I decided to use a frame for my project - something I've not done before.
Most of the papers I used are from DCWV's Holiday Stack. I cut the lamb at 4.5 from Paper Doll Dress Up. I cut a few layers. For the top layer, I cut just the "wooly part" and embossed it. I drew along the raised portions of the embossing with a glue pen and added glitter. The manger was cut at 4 7/8, also from Paper Doll Dress Up. I cut an extra manger with a different paper, and then cut just the straw portion to have a bit of contrast. Baby Jesus was cut at 3.75. Again, I cut a few layers, with the top layer in patterned paper. I embossed the blanket with my Cuttlebug. Most letters were cut at 1 7/8 from Opposites Attract. I also cut a shadow for each layer. The L was cut from Nursery Rhymes at 2 7/8. I glittered the top layer of each letter.
After I had assembled it all, something seemed missing. I tried fake straw, some flowers, buttons, and finally decided on some raffia in a bow. I'm not 100% sold on it at this point though. At least I've got a few more months until Christmas to think!!
