Frame dies are a beautiful way to set off a focal image on a card and make it pop from the page.
I began by printing the Power Poppy Rose & Chamomile Digital Stamp on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then using the PIXScan mat ran it through the Silhouette Cameo to die cut around the image.
I knew that I wanted the flower arrangement to have pink and purple, with hints of yellow and so I when through my stash of patterned paper and found this pretty pink cardstock from Doodlebug Kraft in Color 6 x 6 Paper Pad. It was die cut using the WPlus9 Gift Card Layers Rectangle, which cut a rectangle exactly the size of an A2 top folding cardbase. It was adhered to the cardbase using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.
My Favorite Things Stitched Oval Frame was used to create a frame for the focal image. 3M ½” Foam Tape was cut in half so that it would be a narrow strip and adhered to the back of the frame. It was placed on an A2 top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock to determine where to stamp the sentiment from Winnie & Walter Sentimental Birthday with Hero Hues Onyx Black Ink. In looking back on the card, I think it would have looked better to heat emboss it with white embossing powder, but I still like the look of the card.
The backer paper was removed from the foam tape and the oval frame was adhered to the card front. 3M ½” foam tape was placed strategically on the back of the flower arrangement so that it would rest upon the frame, but still be supported underneath in the open areas. It turned out to be a pretty card.
