Framed Card Tutorial

Today we have a tutorial from Shelly, one of our guest designers. We invite you to follow along to learn how to make a fast and easy framed card.

Here are Shelly's step by step instructions:

A simple framed card that is so easy to make. I have used
Spellbinders Matting Basics  and  Spellbinders Foliage dies.


Above you see how I arrange my dies for the frame. I have two examples using the Matting Basics. The first is slightly wider and has been textured in a Flora Spellbinders M-Bossabilities embossing folder.

The other frame has been embossed using the Matting Basics dies themselves. I leave the low tack painters masking tape on after die cutting and run it through the die cut machine again, using the soft rubber embossing mat.

Once the Spellbinders Foliage leaves have been cut and embossed, I use the flat portions of paper egg cartons to create a 3-D look. You can cut that egg carton to any size AND you are recycling. It’s fast, easy and makes your husband look at you strangely. (Oh dear, what is she up to now?)
 The foliage die cut on this card is from Marianne Designs.

The background is made with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

Thanks, Shelly for such a great tutorial!
