3-D Building # 1 Winter Woodland Village

Here is building # 1 from the Winter Woodland Cartridge. I made this set last year with my baby bug. If you would like to see that series from last year.  I will put the links at the bottom of this post.
This year I used my expression, but soon realized that it would be pretty close to last years size, unless I got a 12  x 24 mat.  I also found it difficult  to get 12 x 24 solid paper in colors I would like to use for houses.  So I went to the craft store and  bought poster board.  I used my normal blade ( It's all I have) and it cut just fine on pressure max and blade 6.  For this house I did not have the pressure set on max, since it was my first try.  You can see the cut is not as crisp, but I was not about to waste a poster board, so I made due.  The size was done on my gyspy to the larges size the mat would allow.

The wreath and the Noel banner came from Jolly Holidays.  What a cute cartridge it is.  It is my first lite that I have gotten and I am quite pleased.

Here are some links to my ones last year and also a link to a cricut post that tells the size of your paper for each house.  Very nice resource.
