While hopping around blogland lately, I've seen alot of framing done lately. I really like the look, so I decided to give it a try. Here's my take on a framed card and another use for those awesome Butterfly Ribbon Slides (681D).
I started first by cutting my card front from peach colored card stock. I inked the edges with orange ink, used a decorative border punch for the left side and then a corner punch on the right 2 corners. I used Nestibility dies to create the hole in the center for my frame. I stamped "As Another Year Flies By" (489F) at the top of the card front and then ran it through the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I added some orange ribbon to the the left side and decorated the left side of the frame with Prima flowers and brads. I stamped the Butterfly ribbon slide twice, colored both with Copic Markers and fussy cut them out. I attached them by layering them and then adding 3 black brads to the body. All of this completed the frame card front.
The center of the frame was created by stamping a panel of peach cardstock with the Silhouette Butterfly Background (536H) using Versamark ink. Then I heat embossed it with black sparkle embossing powder and attached it to the center of a black cardstock base.
My final step was to attached the card front to the base using foam tape to create the frame depth. Wouldn't this be great for a Fall birthday? I guess I have my Aunt's October birthday card already finished! Yeah!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll be back soon!
