Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
This week's idea is to Frame your stamped image.
To showcase a great stamped and colored image, it's fun to frame it
in this beautiful way.
I used the Spellbinders die, from the Labels One set.
Since the largest die is 4 inches square, I cut the yellow, green and printed card stock
4 1/2 " x 5". I then centered the 4", 31/2" and 3" dies from the set and cut and embossed them.
Put adhesive around the open edges of the 31/2 " frame and line it up with the 3" frame and
adhere. Do the same with the 4" frame and adhere to the other two. Trim the edges of
the lower layers if they don't line up exactly after adhering.
My card is 12 x 5" folded in half and folded tent style. I used a piece of the design paper (K & Company) to adhere down the center of the medium brown card stock card base
The image should be cute to fit under the frame, leaving an edge to adhere the frame to.
I used foam tape to pop up the frames over the image.
This is such an elegant look, don't you think?
For those of you who like visual instructions, and who doesn't, there is a great tutorial
by Kittie Caraccialo on her blog, Kittie Kraft.
This sweet basket of eggs is by Great Impressions (F518)
The little chick is a punch by Fiskars.
Card stock is Bazzill.
Colored with Copic Markers.
Hope you have a chance to try this framing technique.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Monday.  Until later............
