Good morning! Today over at The Paper Players we're featuring frames! I created a wintery card with a framed snowflake.
At first glance, the snowflake may appear to be floating. But I've sandwiched a piece of window sheet in between the actual card and the card front, to which I adhered the snowflake image. When I die cut the hole in the card front and card, I place the card front on top of the card so that the holes lined up correctly, then put the window sheet between them, glueing everything down. I used a pinking shear die cut circle, which I die cut a center circle out of to create the frame.
I wanted a wintery effect from the flourish. So, I stamped them with Whisper White Craft Ink and then used Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. This was a bit difficult to photograph, to show you the iridescentnous. (new word for your vocabulary!)
I stamped the center snowflake with Versamark and used silver EP. Because I glued this directly to the window sheet, I didn't want the glue (Tombow Mono Multi) to show, so I stamped and embossed one for the inside too.
One more glittery pic for ya!
