The Wreath ~ McMahon Vintage Digitals

When I saw this new image of "The Wreath" I knew I wanted her to look like she was hanging the wreath on a door. I wasn't sure how I was going to create that effect until I remembered my really cool Cuttlebug Embossing Folder ~ Lace Door. I only used the center portion of the die-cut on Real Wood Paper from M5D, but the effect is just what I was looking for this time. After I colored this image, I cut it out and popped it with dimensional tape. There is Prima lace and Champagne Pearls from Basic Grey to accent the colors I chose.

Here is a closer picture showing the details of how well the Real Wood Paper cuts AND embosses.
