Cricut Christmas Wall Art -Visions of Sugarplums-Day 1

From Cricut card to wall art!

The Cricut Craft Room has been generously 
supplying free Christmas cards cuts for their 
users.  When I saw this particular one, I knew
I had to create a wall sign for my foyer.

I liked how they hyphenated the word Christmas,
'highlighting' the word Christ...
the reason for the season!

In the Cricut Craft Room, I enlarged the Christmas card to 
fit my 12 x 12 mat, then cut and used it as a stencil. I measured the area of the stencil I wanted to use and found a piece of scrap wood from hubby's shop and sanded the edges.  I 'pounced' some acrylic paint on it with a contrasting color and that was it.  
Fast, easy & fun!

If you have an electronic cutting machine,
do you use it to create home decor?
