Framed Hugs

Combine rubber stamping with card making to create decorative easel frames to display special moments captured on film.

Published in CardMaker, July 2012.  Complete instructions and supplies listed on pages 64-65.

Penny Black’s Paisley Outline gives this shapely Spellbinder die cut a lovely pattern.

Tip/Hint:  For die cuts with rounded bases that will be displayed in a standing position, “rocking” can be prevented by trimming a small (horizontal) strip off of the rounded back base edge.  

Since this concept is based on a layered card design, these photographic treasures are easy to mail to friends and relatives with additional space to enclose a personal note or journaling.
A special thank you to Meagan Sell for sharing this beautiful photograph with me!
