Phew! I finally finished a Christmas project that I've been struggling with for three weeks and it is packed away for NEXT Christmas. I celebrated by taking on the BBTB2 " New" challenge here.
I needed a card to put in Master J's castle mailbox this week and as I remembered how pretty it looked in the snow, strung with colorful lights, I thought about the Winter Castle shadow box file from Lori Whitlock just waiting to be cut on my Explore.
A new project deserves a new cutting blade and a new mat, don't you think? Even so, I had to move the dial to Fabric + to get a clean cut with this heavyweight textured paper. I added the 'Happy New Year' sentiment from the Phrases cart, and the banner comes from 'Bits and Pieces.' I discovered that since Fabric+ cuts twice, it also writes twice and my 2017 text came out very clearly. (Note to self - remember this!)
Here's a side shot to show the dimension. I used clear Wink of Stella to add sparkle to the castle, hills and snowflakes and is ALMOST as pretty as the real thing in Master J's back yard!
Hurry over to BBTB2 and see all the entries! Thanks for visiting with me today. : ) Christine
