Our Daily Bread Frame It


The challenge this week at Our Daily Bread Designs is to Frame It.  What better use of the fabulous frames from Sweet Stamps than this challenge.  So I stamped the sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection 3 onto vellum, then stamped Sweet Stamps Elegant Scroll Work frame around the words with white dye ink.  I heat embossed it with Queen's Gold embossing powder.  I flipped the vellum over and lined it up on my 6 x 9 Straight Grid. Then all I had to do was rub my embossing tool over the holes in the grid to create the embossed dots between the frames, a very fast but elegant technique.  I mounted the frame onto some blue card stock, trimmed it to 4 x 5.25 inches and then mounted that to my white card base which I edged with a gold metallic marker.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
