Santa's Coming to Town!

 
Happy Friday, it's Liz at Liz's Paper Loft.  Well, today is my last day as Guest Designer at Everyday Cricut!  Even though I knew it would have to end, it's still hard to say goodbye  :)  It's been an honor to have been asked to do this, and I want to thank Joy and Melanie for all the fun I've had this week! 
Before I start to really ramble, let's get to my last project!  A few years back I made a Halloween Shadow Box.  It has been one of my most popular projects on my blog and Pinterest.  So I thought that I would create a Christmas Shadow Box similar to my original one!
 

I used different colored vinyl to cut the Santa, moon and "Merry Christmas"!

 
I used the negative part (the part you would normally throw away) of the vinyl to create the moon with glass etching!  Then placed the cut Santa on the outside of the glass.  And again the "Merry Christmas"!  It is really easy to do!
 

It's hard to see, but I stamp a "scroll stamp" with a darker shade of blue/gray, then on some of the scrolls I traced with Zig glue and added glitter! Yes more glitter! lol!
 
 
Once the house was in place then I added the peppermint candy to the inside of the frame!  Easy Peasy!

Debora LeVan said...

I have to assume here that the candy does NOT stay in there. I would think over time they would melt and or attract bugs. BUT I do love it.

Glenda said...

Have enjoyed you all week. Thanks so much. You're like fresh air with such bright ideas! Thanks again.

Bunnyfreak said...

Love the candy you added.

Kristie Maynard said...

Love this! Great idea to put the candies in there, so whimsical! Very nice, indeed!
