The shadow box is 10x20 inches and the items in it are layered at various heights to make it look 3D, like it is standing in a room. The corset is cut from 2 layers of pearlized paper then trimmed with satin ribbon, lace and flat backed pearls. I added gel pen stitching and gathering on the gathers to give it a bit more dimension. My cut file was done in Inkscape and cut with SCAL2. Although I love the ease of all my Cricut cartridges I find I gravitate back to using Inkscape to get those really individual cuts I need. I very recently bought the new program called Making the Cut and so far I must say I really like the ease of it. I have yet to make a cut with it due to getting ready for Christmas but will try giving it a work out this week. If anyone wants the cut file for my shadow box I would love to share. Here are the links to the SVG - Corset & Stand, SCAL2 both layers. If anyone would like the MTC version I will be testing that out in the next couple days so let me know.
It has been far to long since I've posted or just relaxed and crafted these past months. Life just seems to keep getting in the way sometimes. You think I would have learned by now taking time to scrap is the best stress reliever there is for me. My doctor should just tell me to take 2 asprin, make 1 layout and call him in the morning. LOL.
