Love in the Winter

Designed by Jeannie Phillips Southside, AL
Click on any picture to enlarge.
I went and looked at some tole painting pictures on line and was inspired by a snowman that had this look... it not the same at all... but the inspiration... I made the snowman with George ovals on my Gypsy... I was so tickled when it all came together!!...the background paper inspired all the color choices... Hope that you like it!!... love your comments! Hugs, Jeannie
Ovals cut at w 5.30 x h 1.84 (small circle cut 1x) h 2.14 x w 2.89 (med circle cut 2 time's) w 4.01 x h 3.95 (large circle cut 3 times)... for the back layer I welded one of each size together...for the middle layer I welded a large and medium circle together...and a single large circle for the front circle...
Rectangle cut @ w 4.01 x h 0.11 I did this to make a cut line in the worked great.
Eye circles cut @ w 0.21 x h 0.19.
Nose circle cut @ w 0.17 x 0.16.
Button circles cut @ w 0.37 x h 0.35.
Flowers cut @ w 0.71 x h 0.65 and w 0.67 x w 0.61.
Hearts cut @ w 1.39 x h 1.67..cut 2 and pop-dotted one from the other.
The third heart is a part of the scarf grouping.
Paper Doll Dress Up
Hat cut @ w 1.27 x 2.08.. cut twice so that I could cut the hat band out of the orange/red paper.
Winter Woodland
Scarf (grouping) is a snowman layer feature cut @ w 2.67 x 7.78...used the scarf on the snowman and the heart on the inside.
Home Decor
Branches cut @ w 2.27 x h 1.41.
These are really thin but cut out really really well.

This is the cut file just before I printed it...I did delete the notes before I printed...I am still at the point having to delete everything that isn't grouped..then going back to cut the grouped items.

This is the cut file saved so I will recognize how it should look when finished.
If you open your rectangle card base as a template it does not cut...but the picture stays on the mat so you can lay your card out and get everything the right size.



Jeannie,you are so amazing! I want these snowmen cards. Quit teasing me!!
