How to make Baby Jesus and the manger … Close up picture of this Gypsy shot below.
Square… that is smaller on one side than the other… cut @ w o.30 x h 0.66.. If you zoom in you can work with this better…. On the Cricut I would cut this at ¾ and inch.
Legs.. The letter “x” from George cut @ 0.35 x 0.44... On the Cricut I would cut these @ ½ and inch.
Baby Jesus’ head circle cut @ ¼ and inch…on the Cricut I would cut this at ½ an inch.
First I welded the lopsided square to the two X.’s I grouped these and then I welded them.. Duplicate this image then add the circle… cut the first piece in the manger color and the second piece the color you want baby Jesus…. On the Cricut I would cut the lopsided square and the X’s in the manger color glue these to the square with part of the X behind the square…see picture…then I would cut the circle the color I wanted the Baby Jesus and glue the bottom half of this to the back of the square.
Heart cut @ w 1.41 x h1.69... On the Cricut I would cut this @ 1 ¾ inches.
Going Places
Globe and its shadow blackouts (2) cut @ w 3.10... Set the width and the height will be right on both cuts…. On the second shadow blackout cut you will weld you letters for “for God so loved” to this… you will have to use the rotate button to get the letters in place right…..On the Cricut I would cut these @ 3 inches.
All Mixed Up
Letters for “for God so loved” cut @ h 0.65.. Set the height and the width will be right… I did change the height of 2 or 3 of the letters to get the look I wanted … you can make the decision on this….on the Cricut I would cut these letters a ½ and inch… place one of your shadow blackout pieces on then card and line the letters up around that… see video for popping instructions.
Letters for “the World” cut @ h 0.68...set the height and the width will be right… I did make the l and d a couple of taps larger using the large circle that enlarges the images…. You can do this to get the look you want… on the Cricut I would cut these at ¾ and inch.

Thanks for the comment on the Cricut board. I haven't been by in a while. I'm glad I stopped by to see what you are up to. I like to give credit to the Holy Spirit for my creativity too....especially know it is from Him when it flows so easily!

What a Blessing! So very very beautiful!! Would love to know where you get your quilling glue. I didn't know that they even made it. I use Scotch Glue when I quill.
