White Christmas Painted Wood Sign


I saw this idea from The House of Smiths last year and couldn't wait to try it! 

White Christmas Painted Board

I started with a wood plaque from Hobby Lobby ($3).

I then placed a push pin in each corner of the plaque to keep the paint from sticking to the newspaper.
I covered the entire plaque using "Santa Red" Americana Acrylic Paint (3-4 coats).
You can apply this paint with a foam brush but an actual paint brush (1 to 2 inch width) allows you
to get the sides a little easier.  Lastly, I cut my design out on white vinyl and
 placed it on the painted plaque after it dried.

Welcome Back Card

Here's a card that I made recently.  We had a co-worker come back to work after leaving us for a few months.  We designated him the Brett Favre of the pharmacy so I made a card to go with the theme! :)
