another Safmat project

Have you seen the new Autumn Winter Collections released by Stampavie?  ♥ them!  There are so many sweet images that it was hard to choose what to work with first!  This one really caught my eye…I think it’s the endearing look in the reindeer’s face.  I also decided to pull out my Safmat and create a candy jar to match my card.

First, here’s a close up of the card.   The image is by Tina Wenke and it’s called Santa With Lamb and Reindeer.  The sentiment is from another Tina Wenke set called Holiday Wishes.   

I bought the jar from my friend, Tracy, and I didn’t really have any ideas at the time what I wanted to do with it.  So I’m happy to have used it.

After I colored my image, I scanned it to my computer and enlarged it a bit.  When you have your image to the size you need, just print it out onto a sheet of Safmat.  (Be sure to print it on the correct side…don’t ask me how I know.  LOL)  Then you just cut your image out and apply it to your project (like a big sticker!). 

TIP: I used a craft knife and metal ruler to lightly cut the transparent film without cutting through the paper backing.  This way I could remove my printed piece and still have a whole sheet of backing to feed through the printer again for another project.

Here’s the candy jar filled with yummy Christmas mints…

Normally the “background” would be more clear but when I scanned my image, my background wasn’t perfectly white.  It would have taken more patience than I had to remove the background around all those snowflakes, etc.  LOL.  So I left it as it was.  BUT I’m glad I did because it makes the glass look etched IRL…kinda cool, actually!

Here’s a better shot of the lid…the metal snowflake and jingle bell were from my friend Michele.  I didn’t use them on the project she gave them to me for but I don’t think she’ll mind.  🙂
