Holiday Wall Decor

I have some art on the wall near our dining room table, and every year I like to change it out at Christmas time . . . the floral artwork just seems awkward at Christmas time.

To start with, I found two 5x7 frames that I liked, and then I picked to images from the Christmas Cheer Cricut Cartridge.



For the first one I used a glossy paper with a green tone on tone pattern of holly leaves on it. I then cut out the "Ho, Ho, Ho" image from the Christmas Cheer Cricut Cartridge from a red and white striped paper that had a candy cane feel. I then cut out the same "Ho, Ho, Ho" image from solid red paper in the shadow function and backed the striped "Ho, Ho, Ho" and then I mounted that on the green holly paper.

For the second frame I decided to cut out a Christmas tree from the Christmas Cheer Cricut Cartridge. I cut this out in a rich green paper, and used a wood grain paper for the trunk of the tree. I did the shadow of this image in a softer green color, and mounted the entire thing on a red glossy paper with a tone on tone image of snowflakes. To top things off, I added a star to the top of the tree that I punched out of metallic silver paper, and used several different metallic colored papers to create the shimmering lights on the tree.

I think that these made great Christmas decorations, and these layouts could easily become Christmas cards.
