Christmas Past

Oh, its that time of year again....time to start making those christmas cards.  Here is a card I made for a christmas card swap with a few of my friends...I  used  Graphic 45, Deluxe Edition Christmas Past paper ( to die for!!!)   You had to come up with a technique and some layers...so this is what I came up with.  I wanted the viewer to get the 'picture'. 
I used Victorian Greetings as my wallpaper.  I mounted it on a piece of stampin up old olive paper.  I used my Labels 4 nestabilities  to cut out my picture image.  I used the christmas wishes paper. (I was able to get 5 good pictures from one sheet).  Using my metallic gold painter marker, I 'painted' the edge of  the cut out to make it look like an antique picture frame.  I then  used Ultra Thick Embossing powder to make the glass.  I then mounted it onto the Nestabilities oval cutout just so it would break up the image against the wallpaper.  I then used my metallic gold painter marker and 'painted' the edges of my cardstock base and old olive cardstock.  If you don't own a painter marker...you gotta get one!  Its the bomb!  Hope you enjoyed my card.  Happy Holidays...
