Use Designer Frames With Your Photos


I just went on a trip to Hawaii and of course, I took lots of pictures. What better way to share them than put them on cards, right?  The Designer Frames die set is perfect for photos.  These went together in minutes and they look great.  The words are interchangeable and you can put them at either the top or the bottom of the frame. The set comes with three words, thanks, congrats and birthday plus a solid band so you have the option of stamping or writing something different.

You can cut these frames in two steps, but I found it easier to cut them in three.  I cut the outer 4" x 5.25" frame first, then I centered the inner cut-out on that, then I cut out the word last.

I printed my pictures on 4" x 6" photo paper and added the frame to the photo before trimming the top and/or bottom off.  That way I get a perfect fit every time.  For these photos I used Rich Coral and Lemon Drop card stock for the frames and mounted them on 4.25" x 5.5" Whip Cream card bases.

Our card  stock is on sale until the end of this month so be sure to grab some soon!
