Several weeks ago I shared a quick and easy card that features flowers from Helping Me Grow, a frame from Rose Garden and a bold sentiment from Grateful Bunch. In case you missed the card, which was designed for a Pals Paper Arts color challenge, here it is (you can click on the picture to see the original post:
Again, if you want to read the original post, click on the photo above. 🙂 Sure, the flowers are great! Yes, the background with spots from the Number of Years set are fun. It’s the Blushing Bride border around the frame of the sentiment, though, that makes this card so special.
I love that so many of Stampin’ Up!’s stamp images coordinate with great Framelits dies so that we can easily crop out the image, leaving a thin border around the stamped image. Such a quick and easy way to pop up images and beautifully frame them. You asked for a video, and I really hate to disappoint you, so I’ve filmed one to show you how easy it is to create fun frames with Framelits.
I hope you enjoy:
In summary, I shared three ways to showcase the frames around our stamp-and-Framelit pairings:
- Stamp the image and crop it out. The border around the edge of the image will be the same color as the cardstock you stamped on.
- Stamp the image. Snip a tight border around the image. With another sheet of paper, crop the Framelit image. Layer the two.
- Stamp the image and crop it out. Use Stampin’ Write Markers to color around the stamped border.
