I love how this turned out. I have very few pictures from this particular Christmas. (BTW, the baby my son is holding is a college freshman, and my son is 28 so...yeah...I'm a little behind.) Having paper that is busy enough to be interesting without stealing the show from my photo is something of a Christmas miracle.
I sized the postage stamp and ticket border as suggested on the carrier sheet of the WOTG stamps. Then I started fussing. In the end, the rest of the items ended up as follows:
- red"december": H=5.7, W=5.28 (I turned it sideways)
- tree: H=5.73, W=5.57
- deer: H=3.89, W=2.47
- black "christmas": H=5.98, W=8.09
You'll notice that the idea I had on my screen called for the postage symbol to be down by the deer. Once I got everything cut and stamped with Black ink, it didn't look right so I moved it to the top left. What did make me happy was how the various elements layered just right so holes on the "december" and "christmas" mats (which are actually the base pages for a mini album) were covered.
And talk about quick!! It took me more time to put this post together than the entire page--Design Space fussing included. You gotta love the coordination between CTMH stamps and Cricut cartidges!!
Until next time,
