I thought this lovely Pine Frame die would be a nice addition to my goodies, and it just arrived a few days ago. Today I mixed it with some older supplies and made 2 cards.
For this card, I decided to use an old favorite Christmas scene in the center. I stamped it, then trimmed out an oval that fit nicely inside this cover die, sponged on some tumbled glass in the sky area and stamped my sentiment. After sponging the pine frame with distress inks, I splattered some white diluted paint across the surface as "snow", then adhered the oval die to the center. And I popped the frame above my card base for a little shadow interest.
Next, I used a larger sentiment and some dies in the center of my card. The pine sprig dies are also a part of the frame set, a nice little extra.
It's nice that this frame die can be used vertically or horizontally, and all throughout the year, not just for the holidays.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
