Good morning sweet friends! Here is today’s card for giveaway to one of you! For Day of Friday Giving I have a new card with a wonderful scripture stamp from Quietfire Design – Every Good Perfect Gift. I love a sentiment that you can send for any occasion! To pair it with dies that need nothing else to shine, make for a card you’re more likely to put together. I get a lot of mileage out of framed cards because the frame is the decoration and the frame absolutely completes the card! So in short – you can make a card that looks just like this.
About The Card
Today I selected a die from the new(ish) Art Deco Collection with Spellbinders. I’m telling you – the die does all the work! I simply cut an aperature in my gold foil paper using Spellbinders Labels Thirty Five. Once cut, I centered the opening over Spellbinders Deco Lux die template and cut. This gave me a frame. I stamped my sentiment onto vellum so that it would not need to compete with the print background and trimmed the vellum so that it would fit within the frame. The sentiment is adhered with one layer of foam tape and the remainder of the frame is adhered with two layers of foam tape. It’s that easy. Now the Deco Lux die cut out is 6 x 6 and since I wanted more accent around that frame I started with a card base that is 6-3/4″ x 6-3/4″ – since there are so many envelope makers on the market, making a custom envelope for this card is no problemo :-) The gold rimmed layer that sits on my card base is 6-1/4″ x 6-1/4″ (using the Hinged technique to make the card base).
