This card I made for the Technique Time Tuesday - Faux Frame challenge. I use this quite often although I don't quite make the frame the same way, but I did do it this time just as the video demonstration and I will use this technique again, especially as I now have my Cuttlebug out all the time!!! So thank you for showing us this way of making a frame.
I made the frame as instructions and sponged the background using Big and Juicy inks. The tree is a stamp from the Stamps Away Tree collection, lovely tree stamps I use them often. I stamped it first in black and then again in versamark and heat embossed it using white embossing powder, slightly off centre so the black looks like a shadow. I sprinkled embossing powder in the sky and round the tree to look like snow and it is quite effective,(does not show up too much in photo.) I embossed some white card using a snowflake embossing folder and it came out really well. Pristine white it was and then the inevitable happened!! I turned the card over to put the tape on the back and when I turned it back it was all smudged with blue ink!!! How did that happen?!!! I was not pleased!! I had to cut the smudges off and so the card became smaller, but it is still all right I think. That always happens to me. I am afraid I am a bit of a messy worker! Silver bow and some gems were added for a bit of Christmas bling and there is another card for Christmas made.
I have suddenly realised how close Christmas is now, and so I am in a bit of a panic this morning as I am very behind this year and have so much to do before then. But I expect I am not the only one!!! Hope your Christmas preparations are well ahead.
