Almost Christmas Again!

Festive Greetings to all my blogging friends!

Today's PCW contribution is a gorgeous Bear in a Stocking image that I used with the Print to Cut feature on my Cricut Explore. I have had my Explore for almost a year and I have used it almost every day since I have had it - except for the times when I have been away from home!

 I sized the image so the main image in the set was 3 1/2" and then I printed the entire set of images.

When the print was completed, I cut the image using the explore and you can see from the close-up photo below, that the cut is extremely good.

I added glitzy pen to some of the features on the images, such as the outside of the bows and ribbons, the candy cane and the stocking. I added liquid glass to the eyes and nose to make them stand out.

When I had completed the process of layering the bear using foam tape, I decided to put him on the outside of a gift box I had made recently from a Cricut Cartridge - CTMH Artiste. The box is approximately 2 3/4" square and will hold loads of Hershey's Kisses! I added some gold tape to the top and bottom of the box.

I hope this inspires you to explore the Print to Cut files on PCW here.

I wish you all a happy holiday season and look forward to being with you again in January, 2016!
