Measurements: My advice is to print the layout and cut it apart to get a curved panel template, I will give the end width of 2 1/8” on the left and 1 7/8” on the right, this includes the blue borders
Circles: top left – 1 3/8”, bottom right 1 5/8” both measurements include the blue border – both are cut with Nestabilites
-My curved panel is opposite of the layout because I embossed it backwards by mistake and decided after messing up a second one that this one will work just fine!
-I used Fiskars scallop scissors for the curved panel’s blue border.
-Prismacolor pencils were used to add shading to the snowman’s face and hat.
-Stickles were used to add sparkle to the face.
-Diamond Glaze was applied to the nose.
-The grey hat, red band, gold buckle and scarf were all paper pieced.
-For the Cuttlebug negative effect embossing technique - click here. This technique was done on the curved panel and the envelope. I also made two score lines on the envelope.
-The circle sentiment was created on the computer in Microsoft Word. If you would like to download the file you can find it in this thread in post #3.
I tried to find this in Word Perfect and my Windows XP program does not offer it.
