I chose Santa Baby for my project. I'm always looking for new Christmas decor items and I thought this would be a fun and cute project. I found this frame at JoAnne's. It was $1.99 and I had a 50% coupon so it cost me $1.04 including tax! What a bargain! So I painted it with some red craft paint, distressed it with a sanding block and some Vintage Photograph Distress Ink to vintage it up a bit. Then I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel, paper pieced much of it and Copic colored the rest. And added some Liquid Applique to Santa's beard and cuffs. Then I just put it together, much like a card, and put it in the frame. See those Bling 'Bet letters? So perfectly cut? I did them with my Cricut :) I used the Bling 'Bet Alpha Shadow file and then stamped the letters on the die cuts. If you've ever cut these letters out by hand, as I have, you'll really appreciate how fast and perfectly the cut files work. I popped them up on Pop Dots, tied on the sentiment, added some Snowflake Trio Die-namics die cuts and some buttons and it was done. I absolutely LOVE how this turned out and I expect to get lots of comments on it during the Christmas season. Other MFT products I used are Wild Cherry and Gumdrop Green card stock
