I got my inspiration from this picture:
But I wanted to do something a little different.
I went to Hobby Lobby, found red poster board, white scrapbook cardstock, and 18x24 frame.
I got lucky. Everything was on sale!
Red Poster Board - $.50
White Scrapbook Cardstock pack - $4 -- I only used 3 sheets of 12x12
18x24 frame - $17.50
Mat and cutting - free (S's dad had extra and cut it for me too!) I think you can get 1 cut for $1 at Hobby Lobby - I'm not sure though.
I spent a total of : $22
I sketched up what I wanted to do. As you can see I just grabbed whatever I could find on the table!
I had used Cricut Cutting Up Cartridge for the lettering.
I put it all together last night. I had to revise from what I sketched, I moved the "to the" next to Joy because I didn't have room for "the Lord" to be on one line... I still think it turned out nice.
S said it has the 'Dr. Seuss' look. I have to agree. It's cute, and I'm happy with it!
Our mantel is very sparse, so, I'm trying to do something every year. :)
