This year I was pondering what we should get her for Christmas, it's so hard when they already have everything they need. I really wanted to make her something, and I remembered that I had the Inspired Heart Cricut cartridge. So I started looking over it, and saw that there was a Nativity Scene, that has Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus in the manger. I knew that was it, so I started to think about how I wanted to lay it out. And of course I would put it on a dark 12x12 ceramic tile!
Using my Cricut Design Studio, I got it all arranged how I wanted the finished product to look. Then I cut out the "outline/shadow" of the Nativity Scene in my Gold Metallilc vinyl that I purchased from Expressions Vinyl. Next I cut out the actual Nativity Scene itself using Dark Red vinyl, which I also purchased from Expressions Vinyl. I grabbed my transfer tape and stuck them on the tile, centering and sticking down where I wanted them to be. The Gold part was first, then the Red Nativity Scene was second. I needed something else, so I got out my Accent Essentials cartridge and cut out 3 stars to put in the corners on Gold Metallic vinyl.
I could've left it as is, but it still needed a little *sparkle*. So I decided to use glitterfy the stars using Modge Podge and Gold Glitter. And then I got some Gold Tinsel Garland and hot glued 2 strands at the bottom. Viola...it was finished!! I think it looks really neat, and will be a nice addition to her decor!!
