Christmas Tray

This was quite a project!!  It was almost like designing seven cards at once and they all had to go together :-)  But it's done now and I am pretty happy with it.. It was actually fun to do and I know that I will make this type of trays again for other occasions.

This tray measures 12" x 12" with each opening measuring 4" x 6".  Click on the photos to enlarge to see the details :-)

Did you notice that I made a window for Marcy?  I made it out of Grunge Board - painted with acrylic paints, distressed with Inks and embossed with wood grain embossing folder to give it some texture :-)

I used tons of different products and used a lot of different techniques for this project.  To name a few..
