Frame Builder Dies

 Today I'm playing with some new-to-me dies.  

supplies: white, Lavender and a darker purple cardstock, Doodlebug patterned papers, Pink Fresh Studio Botanical Rectangle Frame Builder die, Simon Miss You sentiment die, Taylored Expressions Rosy Posy embossing folder

This Frame Builder die set is an interesting one - you can either make your frame by cutting the die twice, and spacing it as close or as far away as you want on your card front (see my 2nd card below), or you can cut it once like this, then use the negative of the cut to complete the rectangle.  I inlaid the flower with some tiny Doodlebug patterns: flowers, dots, and gingham, then framed my rectangle in lavender and popped it above an embossed background that mimics the flower.

Here's a closer look at the patterns.

This die set includes this floral corner, and also a leaf corner, so it's a nice value for the money.  You can use either one, or both to make your frame.

Next I made an easy card using the other die twice.

supplies: white cardstock, a patterned paper from Simple Stories Simple Vintage Garden District pad, Pink Fresh Studio Botanical Rectangle Frame Builder, Simon Sending Smiles die

Pink Fresh makes other Botanical Frame Builder dies like these in circle, oval, diamond, or triangle shapes, too!

Thanks for visiting me today - enjoy your day!
