Carta Bella Magnetic Christmas Board With Drawer

Here's my new Carta Bella Design Team project, a refinished magnetic board with drawer!!
For my project I had to pick something from the Tis The Season Idea Book that inspired me.
I chose Kandis Smith's Christmas frame, it's beautiful!
I really enjoyed making this project, I bought the piece on clearance from Burlington Coat Factory awhile ago.  The wood was very dark and I really wanted it white so I primed and repainted it, first with black paint then white.  I used So This Is Christmas Collection to decorate, I really love how it came out.

After painting I distressed it with some sandpaper, you can see the black paint showing through.
I cut up some old magnet business cards and glued them on some of the decorative brads from the collection.  You can see they worked nicely to hold up the cards.

The Christmas tree and gift boxes are from Lori Whitlock's store, I love these little presents you can put a couple of small treats inside.
I used Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine for the chipboard ornaments and Holly Berry on the presents.

I just love this whole collection, it's so beautiful.  That gorgeous May Arts ribbon I bought from Sparkly Sweet Craft Notions shop.

Hope you enjoyed this project, It's really a lot of fun to do over wooden pieces with pretty scrapbook paper.
