Shabby Chic Mini Christmas Book Card

This week’s theme over at the LLC blog is sentiments.I used a vintage image that had a sentiment on it already:

I’ve had a frame for a book card in my drawer ever since former LLC DT Member Elin challenged the team to make book cards; I think it was sometime in February-March 2013. (The first frame I made was too small, so I made another one, but saved the small frame for “a future not too distant project” 😛 ).

The papers are from Maja Design’s 2014 Christmas collection ” A Gift for You”, though the cover is brown cardboard…

Here’s the inside:

The backside of the cardboard I painted with gesso.
The gorgeous paper is used on both sides is “On Christmas Morning”.
