Reverse Confetti Crazy For Christmas - Decor & More

Welcome back to day 3 of the Reverse Confetti Crazy For Christmas event!  Today we're focusing on Decor & More!

For my project today I took a Christmas decoration that I've owned for over 20 years and updated it with some adorable Reverse Confetti products!

I didn't think of taking a picture of what was in this frame previously, but it was a rustic picture of various Santa's lined up in a row.  The outer edge of the frame measures 7 3/4" X 6 1/4".  To update the piece I first measured the inside opening and cut a piece of white Strathmore Bristol smooth watercolor paper to that size and did some ink blending using Wilted Violet and Peacock Feathers distress inks.  Next I added some water splatters to the piece.  I cut a piece of white glitter paper, curving the edge, and glued it across the bottom of the picture.  At this point I inserted the paper in the frame opening.

Next I stamped the images from S'MORE LOVE and MERRY CHRISTMOOSE and colored them with Copic markers.  I die cut the colored images using S'MORE LOVE Confetti Cuts and MERRY CHRISTMOOSE Confetti Cuts, and added them to the base using foam dimensional tape.

I die cut a bunch of snowflakes from white glitter card stock using the snowflake trio die from MERRY CHRISTMOOSE Confetti Cuts.  It's pretty easy to separate the snowflakes with a few snips of a scissors, which is what I did here.

I had so much fun making this and now I have to decide if I want to gift it or keep it for myself :)  I hope you'll visit the rest of the Confetti Crew to see what they've created, I know they'll have some fantastic ideas for you!
