Frames for You!
Hello there! Welcome to this week's Stampin' Royalty challenge, this week we are hosting a picture challenge, take a look, grab your supplies and head on over to link up your creation!
Pretty right? I saw that quilt and was immediately reminded of last year's Christmas Holly Berry Bouquet DSP, so I pulled it out and started to work. A lot of what I had left was really not christmas related, so it worked.
I loved the frames in this picture, and have actually been wanting to do a card with a bunch of frames on it. I made four, but only two made the card. I really love the circle one. I used the designers frames embossing folder and the apothecary accents framelits. I punched the circle out first, lined up the framelit and cut. The interior of the big frame was cut using a craft knife, both frames were popped up with stampin dimensionals.
The top two, I didn't use, I think I will try to incorporate them into the inside. All frames are naturals ivory card stock and are sponged with chocolate chip ink.
The paper inside of this frame was embossed with my ever present chevron embossing folder. A bitty banner was stamped and die cut. I made a little rolled flower out of the cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon, and some chocolate chip satin ribbon ties all the colors together. The fancy fan embossing folder gave me a nice background. All in all a simple look, but pretty detailed with all of the cutting and embossing. This is a textured filled card!
So see, even though this is technically Christmas paper, it can be used for other types of cards, look past the name and create what you want! I really hope you were inspired today, enjoy!
