Matted and Ready for Framing

This project is one I have been wanting to do for awhile. It has a hidden secret! Looking at the front you see this adorable couple from Sarah Kay exchanging holiday greetings. They are framed with a mat; all they need now is a lovely gold frame to make it a special Christmas accent for a side table or wall. So, what is the secret? Behind the image is a full sized card, lined with white parchment for a personal note. It all fits into a 5 x 7 envelope, ready for mailing or personal delivery.

Images like these are just so beautiful when colored that they are frameable. Every card we make, with a creative layout and pretty embellishments, are works of art and worthy of display.

When I named my creative venture "Made For Keeps" I meant it. What better way to keep a special card than to frame it?

I hope you like my "frameable-mailable" card. Give it a try! I'll bet your recipients will love it!

Thanks for stopping by! Your visits and comments are very much appreciated!
