Winter-y Wall Art

I went a bit crazy creating cards for Christmas, so I decided to display a few of the card fronts as wall art.  Some cheap-o frames from Michael’s, a few extra wide mats and voila — Christmas art!  I kept everything in and icy, cool, color palette.

  1. What a brilliant idea, Amy! Your cards are so gorgeous, and when you put them together and framed, they turn into a work of art! Love how you add the silver in, and had to laugh at “sneaux”! I keep looking at them to see if I have a fave, and I can’t decide – they each have their own lovely character. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge! hugs, Maura
