It is Saturday and that means it is time for another challenge at Our Creative Corner. This week Linda our challenge hostess has a great challenge for us. Frame It. Create a frame out of Card stock, chipboard or any other medium you can think of and add it to your card, page or project. The frame should be 3-D as in raised up off the background.
I played around with this one alot before coming up with a design I liked. Alot of things ended up in the circular file on this challenge. Making the frame was fairly easy. I started with a piece of card stock measuring 5-1/4 x 4 inches. I then lightly penciled in lines with my ruler 3/4 of an inch in on all four sides. Using my cutter I trimmed out the inside leaving just the frame. Be sure an erase your remaining pencil lines and then emboss the frame. The inside of the frame piece was started with the apple label stamp, from the retired Stampin' Up Farm Fresh stamp set. I stamped with black stazon onto very vanilla card stock. Cored with my aqua painter and riding hood red, old olive, soft suede and crumb cake ink. The DSP is also retired from the Sweet Slumber paper pack. I added some crochet trim and a few leaves from the bird punch.
OK, did you notice my cute little flower? My first made Ala Linda, The Funkie Junkie style. I got my crinoline and directions for making the flower from her! So fun and I am sure you will see more of these in the coming weeks! I added a red button to the center and tied some floss through the button holes. I still thought it "needed" something so I added the friend to friend flag. That sentiment comes from the Stampin' UP Pocket Silhouette stamp set.
I hope you’ll play along this week and have fun with this challenge! Be sure to check out the rest of the OCC design team creations!
