Sweet Stamps Challenge 11 - Frame It

Today is our eleventh challenge on the Sweet Stamps blog.  Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.  Our challenge  this week is ......

Frame It
(include some sort of a frame on your card)


For my card I chose Cameo Lady, stamped with white dye ink onto 36# vellum.   I dry embossed the frame and the lady from the back side and then lined it up on my 6 x 9 Straight Grid to create the embossed dots around the outer edge, a very fast but elegant technique.  I added color with my Memento markers.  To create the opening in the card and the white border, I used my Cheery Lynn Scalloped Card Makers dies.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!
