Scrapping a Challenge

Every year I scrapbook my families Christmas photo cards.  This year, I struggled with how to scrap by sister's card because of the white metallic portion and the colors of the photo.  So, I took a look at a designer I love and what she did with metallic.  I visited Anna Griffin's paper crafting ideas on Pinterest and found she uses more metallics and paired them with neutrals.  Then I pulled out my Anna Griffin dies and some scrap metallic paper and made some die cuts to fit behind the photo card.  This is another tip from Anna, you don't have to show the whole die cut, so I didn't need a whole piece of silver card stock.  I used scraps and placed the portion of the die that was missing behind the photo.
