Our challenge this time at Crafty Cardmakers is 'You've Been Framed' -(projects must have a frame of any kind (stamped/diecut/decorated) as the prominent feature) and we're being sponsored by Sir Stampalot and Di's Digistamps.
After cutting out the oval shape I cut the large piece to fit the front of a 7" x 5" card.
On the card base I sponged again so that it would show through the cut out frame and then positioned the larger piece over it with foam pads.
The oval frame was then placed inside with thinner 3d foam pads - this meant that the oval frame sat just beneath the cut out piece but wasn't flat!
The trusty Honey blossom die cuts ( love this flower stem to bits!) were layered a few times at the side and I kept the little branch and leaf offcuts to one side.
Sentiment stamped in Victorian Velvet and cut out with another fancy tag die.
The offcut leaf and branches were then just stuck underneath and the card was finished with a couple of die cut butterflies.
