Best Wishes

I had this frame in my mind for days so I finally sat down to try to figure it out.  I knew that I wanted a dressy card and I think the eyelet border punch played into it well.  I cut strips of eyelet border and mitered the edges to make a frame, then I went back and punched the slits with the Fiskars Leave it to Weaver border punch.   Once the slits were done, I taped the frame together on the back and then scored above and below the slits with my ScorPal just to give a little bit more definition and to repeat the border.  The royal blue ribbon is woven in one piece through the card and tied into a bow where the ends meet and large pearl brads added to each corner.  The eyelet frame is popped up on a blue foil frame panel which is popped up on a gold foil frame panel – each with a cut out using my square nestie.   The sentiment is gold embossed on base card where it will show through the window – the eyelet frame is popped up onto the base card.


The card is finished by adding ribbon on the bottom.  I tied knots just for something different.  If you can’t tell, I’m on a foil kick…I have a bit in my stash but noticed that Walmart is selling fun new colors so I’ll have to try them too.  Craft your heart out this weekend!

    Becca, you are brilliant!!!! This frame is absolutely gorgeous and the card is so stunning! I love the colors of white, royal, and gold together. Did you know that white represents purity, royal blue represents royalty and priesthood, and gold represents the glory of God? This combination always makes me think of ‘forgiven’ (white) ‘saints’ (royal) ‘in Christ’ (gold) :). Have a blessed week!ReplyCancel
