ID: DT Aug/14 - Ornate Frame - I Will Honour Christmas card
size: 4.25"w x 5.5"h

Created: Aug 17, 2014

I love this Ornate Frame from Sizzix... and thought it would make a nice Xmas plaque type card. And even though it has a relatively large bow, it does lay pretty flat  so postage should be normal...

I'm a quote stamp from Quietfire Design


Side folded my white card. Used Tim's "Striped" layered stencil and Distress pads ("Worn Lipstick" & "Festive Berry") using a sponge to apply, then clear embossed. Lifted the stencil and moved it over to continue with the pattern.

The frame (Sizzix "Ornate Frame") was cut from white cardstock (keep the drop out piece). Distress pad direct to paper with "Scattered Straw", then hit here and there with Distress mini pads "Crushed Olive" & "Mowed Lawn", then direct to paper with "Worn Lipstick", clear embossed, then smeared "Black Soot" all over and clear embossed again. Adhered to card front.

Stamped the quote onto the drop out piece using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Used a dirty red sponge to color the edges, then adhered into frame.

Tied a 5 loop peg bow using Sari Ribbon ("Marmalade") and adhered to top of frame using a glue gun. PS I ironed the ribbon on a low setting first to get it nice and flat...

Ornate Frame Detail

On the inside, stamped the sentiment with the Onyx, clear embossed, stamped again on some tracing paper to make a mask which I cut about an 1/8" larger than the calligraphy. Sponged some Festive Berry and then some Aged Mahogany using the Stripes stencil.
