I did have the chance to play with Silhouette Design Studio whilst I was away though, and got everything prepared so that I could make the creation below. All I had to do earlier this week, was then cut it all out and prepare it all and make the scene.
Another challenge starts this week at Polka Doodles, can you believe we are in Week 43. The theme this week is, well you probably have already guessed, Christmas :-)
I showed you a little sneak peek earlier in the week too.
All the images and the background scene are all from the new Polka Doodles Home for Christmas CD. I used the pre-coloured images off the CD and my Silhouette Cameo to cut all the pieces out, using the print and cut feature in Design Studio.
First I printed out the background scene to 8" by 10" to make it the same size as an artist board. I cut some slits to push some acetate strips through to the back, then secured the scene print out to the board. The acetate was then secured to the back of the Santa and reindeer to make them stand out from the background scene.
The houses on the background, were printed and cut out separately. I added some Sakura gelly roll pen to the snow on them and then placed them on some foam tape to add a little dimension.
The Church and trees were cut and then, I added some glitter this time. I also added some little paper stands to the back of these so I could stand them on the fake snow and in front of the background to make my own little Christmas display.
I am so pleased with how this came out and will definitely have it on display this Christmas :-)
