As I've said in Day One (If you'd like to see my "little boy" Christmas Card, just click HERE!) I'm starting my portion of the hop with paper things. Things that are simple and easy to do. Today, I did a Santa Silhouette. It is available in Cricut Design Space. I didn't pay anything additional, as I am a subscriber (SOOO worth the $9.99 each month to have WAY more access to cartridges I don't physically own, especially for just one or two cuts!).
I enlarged it to fit an 8-1/2x11 paper... and created an oval shape that would make a suitably-sized backing. (I believe this cut was supposed to be vinyl and adhere to a wall or window. But I didn't want that!)
Santa's Reindeer at Reindeercam.com. It's free to view on your computer (which is what I do...) or you can take it mobile and pay $1.99 for the app on Android or iPhone. Just interjecting this here because you can see what I've got open.
I then cut it all out. The Santa Silhouette (the ACTUAL silhouette) and the frame, I cut in black. I had to do this in two steps, as I could not
I didn't like the little bubble edges on the scallop of the frame, so I contoured them better with my trusty little Cutter Bee scissors. Then it all looked the same
And I felt like I still wasn't done.
So... I stamped in Distress Fired Brick, "I Believe" and all was good.
There is more in store for you, so hop along and please comment on each and everybody. 'Cause you know we all love a little love... And BE SURE to check out the "other" Lisa, as she's the one with all the blog candy and sponsor info! Have a great time, and don't forget to come back tomorrow!
