N is for Name Frame


Thought I'd try something a little different for Kara and Ross (who are getting married soon). Their last name is ten letters long! I've done nine letters, but ten is a stretch without angling and overlapping the letters a little. And I soooo didn't want to go on a hunt for a larger frame, so I decided to use their first names with an acetate overlay and the "&" symbol in the middle. The acetate "clings" to the tags, but I wanted to make sure it would stay put, so the eyelet and bow are holding it in place. They have neutral colors in their home, so I chose neutrals for their frame as well. Can you believe this is the first time I've used my SU Treehouse paper and I've had it since the new catalog came out!? OK, I am off to fix the bow on Kara's name because it is bugging me that it isn't laying straight (lol!) Have a great weekend!
