Two Frame Cards
More photos from the archives! These two cards were both made using one Marianne die set called Straight Frame LR0111. A couple of additional punches - the leaves on the one above were from a Martha Stewart punch, the little butterflies were a Woodware punch and the centres of the smaller flowers on the card below were a Woodware snowflake punch.
On the card above, the frame was cut out of a single layer of card, and sponged before sticking to the base card in the centre and on all of the points. Under each curve there is a foam pad, so that the frame has a ripple effect up and down around the edge. Not that easy to see on the photo, but adds a nice bit of dimension. On the card below the frame was cut out of a folded piece of card, with the fold just skimming below the top of the curves to create the hinge. A layer of card has been added to the centre of both the front and the inside back to add a bit of strength and stability to the card base. The die cut base, and the centre layer have both been sponged to bring out the detail of the embossing (which is done by the die as well).
I still can't decide which one I prefer!
