Die Cuttin Divas Christmas Carol Inspired Challenge

Christmas is certainly in the air right now. We hear Christmas music everywhere. Jingle Bells, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, etc. But my favorites are the Carols about the true meaning of Christmas, Christ!

So, for this weeks challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas - Christmas Carol Inspired - I chose one of my favorite Carols, "Away In A Manger"

For my project I created a little shadowbox of Jesus in the manger.

The sweet little 3D Jesus is a Snapdragon Snippets file over at Sillhouette Studio. It is design #52508 

The hay is raffia spread on the bottom of the shadowbox.


I designed the sentiment in Silhouette Design Studio and cut it out of cream colored vinyl. I placed it on the outside of the glass.

Supplies used: shadowbox - Michaels; cardstock - 2 shades of brown, 2 shades of cream, peach, 2 shades of blue; patterned paper - Basecoat Christmas Collection by Kaisercraft, Alpine Frost by SEI; Raffie; Cream Colored Vinyl.

Now pop on over to Die Cuttin' Divas and see all the fabulous inspiration the rest of the design team has come up with.
Hope to see you playing along with us!!!!

That's one of my favorite songs, too. (They all are!!)
Merry Christmas, Esther!
