Cricut Cricut FANatics Crafty Challenge #4- Christmas/Winter Decorations

This month the Cricut FANatics crafty challenge is to create a Christmas or winter decoration for the home.  I thought this was the perfect challenge to recreate something I came across on Pinterest. 

I loved the look of this wall decor item created by Kim Wilson from Sand & Sisal.

Here is my Cricut version:

The letters were cut from Wall Decor & More at 11 1/2 inches.  Instead of an "O", I used the zero.  Each letter was cut from Cosmo Cricket paper, the "Be Good: Poinsettia" pattern and twice from chipboard for thickness.  After the paper and chipboard was sandwiched together, the edges were inked with VersaMagic "Jumbo Java".  The "N" "0" and "L" were taped together on the backside.  The "E" was placed on top of the other letters using foam tape to give it dimension.

I was very pleased with the results.
