This project made Top 3 at Die Cut Christmas Club Challenges!
This project was runner up at Bizzy Bec's December Challenge!
I was up late last night trying to finish this project and I just put the finishing touches on it! It's another one of my projects for the swap on the Cricut MB I'm in and it's a Christmas Countdown starring Santa Edwin (which can be found at 7Kids College Fund.com. I made it into a box drawer with an easel card top. The paper is from My Minds Eye Christmas glitter pack from last year and it is very sparkly. I love it! I followed the sketch from Sketch and Stash and the image I used is a brand new one from the Merry Little Collection - he's soooo cute! I colored him with my Copics and cut him out with one of my Labels Spellbinders, which can be found at StampingScrapping.com. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink and then added Diamond Stickles to the white trim on Santa's hat and his suit. The Dear Santa sentiment was from a piece of designer paper I had in my stash. I cut Santa's sack out from the Paper Dolls cartridge and my Cricut. I used Christmas Red stickles for the string on his bag. I tied a bow using white satin ribbon and my Bow Easy (I LOVE this thing - perfect for the bow-challenged crafters like me!). I cut the mats for the numbers, punched holes using the crop-a-dile and cut the numbers using the Calligraphy Cartridge and my cricut. I made it so my partner and her son could count down from 99 days until Christmas - I hope they like it! The "Days Til Christmas" was also cut with my Cricut and Calligraphy Cartridge. I added a white paper rose and the round sentiment was a digital stamp, but once again, I forget where I found it (I gotta get better at this!) I haven't decided yet what I'm going to put inside yet....maybe Hershey Kisses, or possibly some cards since most of the cards I make would fit in the box.
Here's a close-up of Santa Edwin, his bag and the countdown!
A side angle - there's tons of pop-dots and dimensionals on this one!
And one last picture with the drawer open:
