Wedding Photo Frame

This week I was presented with the challenge of making a birthday gift for my sister.  She recently got married (in January) and I thought it would be nice to frame one of her wedding photos.  Her wedding had damask print used in many places so I found this paper and thought it would be great to use on a frame.

Materials needed for this project:
Card stock in a shimmer white and any pattern (mine is damask print that has a velvet texture).
Black paint and paint brush
Wooden Frame
Pop Up Squares
Mod Podge
Cricut Carts - Songbird (Y) and Lacy Labels (Frames).

Here is a picture of the project - I painted the frame black and then cut both frame layers and ModPodged them on once it was dry.  I then went over it all with varnish to seal it.

I cut both layers of the "Y" (her new last name initial) and glued them together then put varnish on them so they had the same finish.

I attached the "Y" with pop up squares to give the entire frame some depth.

I hope you like this home decor project - what do you think?
