Combine luxurious suede paper, cheerful foil striped paper and a festive metallic frame for a HO HO HO Holiday Sign

We’re giving lots of photos as gifts this year. I was in Micheal’s checking out the frame sales when I found this metallic red frame (there were a few other colors and some with glitter but we stay away from that lest we have another Disco Baby incident). After a quick stop at in the scrapbook paper aisle I headed to check out with this holiday sign in my mind. Yes, for once, something actually turned out like I had imagined!

Combine luxurious suede paper, cheerful foil striped paper and a festive metallic frame for a HO HO HO Holiday Sign

Instructions:

  1. Open the cut file in studio and place the black suede paper on the mat. I ended up using the presets for thick fabric but I have a very old blade so if your blade is newer you might use a lower blade setting
  2. Load the mat into the machine and cut out the letters
  3. Carefully remove the letters and excess paper from the mat
  4. Take apart the frame, remove the back, insert, photo mat and glass. Replace in this order: Frame, photo mat, striped paper, glass, back
  5. Eyeball (or measure) the center. Using the Mini Glue Dots® attach the letters to the scrapbook paper. I tried my best to get the middle ‘HO’ centered and lined up the rest of the letters with those

I love the look of the suede paper on the shiny foil, it’s strange but the nap of the paper makes it look blacker than regular black paper. It’s soft like velvet and I find my felt touching the letters each time I pass it (which is a lot since it’s on the shelf I pass when I go to the bedrooms, craft room and bathroom. I really like the frame too, it has spring style closures on the back so everything is held in really tight (I appreciate it after framing a bunch of pictures of Mary and 2 day later walking by to find the pictures had slid down behind the mats)
