FTTC52E Hosted by Kimberly



Challenge: Frame It Up! FTTC52E


For this challenge, I want you to use a frame. You can cut a frame out using Spellbinders Nestabilities or use a pre-made frame. Consider using something other than cardstock to make your frame, like chipboard, felt, fabric, ribbon, or lace.








On my card, I stamped Gerbera daisies onto white cardstock. I colored the image in with Copics. Using a knife, I cut out the outside edges of the flowers because I knew that I wanted to lay the frame behind the front flowers. Then I cut out a frame with Spellbinders Megabilities. (For a tutorial on making frames with Spellbinders, click HERE.) I placed the frame underneath the flowers and stamped the sentiment on top of the frame. The frame was foam mounted to the card base. A button-tied bow was added to the bottom. Can you tell I am ready for spring? :)

Supplies:
Stamps-Flourishes (Gerbera Daisies, Seasonal Wreaths) Spellbinders (Nestabilities Mega Deckled Rectangles Small) Copics (The Fields, Hydrangea, Sunflower), Cardstock (Flourishes Classic White)

Check out the frame projects from these fabulous ladies:

As with Silke, I couldn't find a blog link to comment on Kimberly's card there, so this is my comment on her gorgeous gerberas - I always think they are such cheerful flowers, and they look wonderful in these colours.
I've visited all the linked blogs to comment, and just uploaded my own card.
