You're a Mean One.....



 
I have to admit it.  Other than Rudolph and the Miser Brothers the Grinch is my all-time favorite Christmas character.  So as I had some free time I decided to create a Christmas shadowbox that was inspired by this T-Shirt I saw when I was at Universal Studios last month. 
 
 
And it all comes just in time for some great challenges that end this week as well.  (But more about those later.)  First let me tell you how I created my shadowbox.  I started with an 11 x 14 frame that I picked up from Michaels.  Then using Excel I created the line-up back drop on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of white cardstock.
 
The Grinch cut out is from the Krafty Nook and the Ornament in the Grinch's hand is from the Cricut cartridge Simply Charmed.
 
To create the mugshot placard I simply cut a piece of black cardstock and had my Cricut Explore write the verbiage.  The Grinch and Who-ville Police Dept. verbiage I cut out from vinyl and adhered to the outside of the glass.  The font used in both cases is called Grinched and I downloaded it from dafont.com.
 
And now I'm going to enter this shadowbox into the following challenges:
 
Christmas Carol Inspired - Die Cuttin' Divas - Ends December 21st
     not necessarily a "carol" but it is one of my favorite Christmas songs....
 
 

 
 
Christmas Ornament Challenge - Bitten by the Bug 2 - Ends December 21st
 
Anything Goes - Fantabulous Cricut Challenge - Ends December 21st
 
December Linky Challenge - DL Art - Ends December 31st

Elf,  (project inspired by the holiday season) - Red Carpet Studios - Ends December 31st
