Purple Flower In Frame

An embossing folder is used to create the texture that
is the base layer for this card.
The textured ivory paper is cut to 4 x 5.25 inches.
The little berries are highlighted with glitter glue
and the whole is layered over purple card stock.
The purple is cut to a perfect narrow border using
Perfect Layers rulers.

Now we come to the framed k & Company sticker.
Begin with a purple card stock that has been
texturized in Cuttlebug's Distressed Stripes
embossing folder.

The frame was cut using both die cuts at the same time.
This is the only way I have found to get it perfect.
The dies are taped with masking tape to the paper,
cut in my trusty Wizard and while the tape is still
attached they are embossed.

The frame is raised over the sticker layer by
a double layer of paper egg carton cut
into small bits and glued carefully to
the back of the frame.

  1. Beautiful! I can't wait to try your tip for cutting out the frame. I have tried different methods but have never been impressed. Thank you for sharing.
