Personalized Cabin Picture

Good morning everyone! This is my first home decor project using my Cricut and I have to say that I am very proud of myself! :) My sister in law just bought a cabin and I did this for her "cabin" warming gift. I bought the frame at a local store and it actually had a place for 3 pictures in it. I didn't want 3 pictures, so I trimmed the dividers out of the mat to get one long picture mat. This frame is quite big.....not what it looks like in the picture. It is approximatly 12X25 with the inside matted area at 5.5X17. My biggest challenge was then trying to figure out what paper to use as the backround.....seeing as I only , and I'm sure most people, have 12X12 as the longest paper and I didn't want it to have any seams in it. I actually used the poster paper that was in the frame with the picture's on it and I turned it around. I then took an ink pad and smeared it on the backround and then wet my fingers and smeared it to give it a modeled look. It wrinkled just a little, so I ironed it to smooth it back out and take out any extra moisture. The font is from George and the tree's I had to cut by hand because I didn't have any Cricut cuts that would work. I did some white inking on the trees and outlined the font in black marker to highlight the font a little. This turned out, in my opinion, very nice. And she LOVED it. I hope you all have a great day! Take care!
