A Remade Christmas
This is one of the card fronts that were in the stack pulled out at our last meeting. I loved the water color design of the manger scene and decided to go with a more rustic theme. I trimmed the card front close to the embossed edge and then went looking for a mat that picked up on one of the colors. Since there was so much blue I decided to pick up the green instead for a very narrow border and then mounted it to a kraft card base.
One of the lessons I've learned is that as much as I like to create my own designs, having a great picture to start off with still leaves a great deal of creativity to play with.
Thanks for stopping by.
