Still Scenes Framed For You. If I told you that I made the original version of this card about 3 weeks ago, that may make you wonder why I didn’t share it sooner. To be honest, I really don’t know, but it has been in the queue for filming for at least that long. The card uses both Still Scenes (carried over from last year’s Holiday Mini) and the new Framed For You, both in the Annual Catalogue.
I wanted to use the Framed For You set, which has been sitting looking at me for a while, so I had a look at the stamp images that could fit inside the frame and found myself drawn to the Still Scenes set. The house fits inside the frame perfectly and keeping everything light results in a really pretty winter card. Add a Christmas sentiment if you want, but I think it would be just as welcome as a Winter Birthday card. I chose to die cut the frame using the Square Layering Dies, and then add a separate piece of card for the picture. But you could use just the one piece and trim the frame to size if you don’t have a die cutter.
I chose to use Pool Party, Soft Seafoam and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends for the colouring, but mostly using the light versions of each, plus some Colour Lifter. To help with the feeling of frost, I stamped the frame in Sahara Sand ink, but added some Clear Wink of Stella on top. The Pool Party layer is from the Snowflake Splendour Designer Series Paper. Of course using Pool Party also means that I could add some of the Sheer Ribbon from the Whale of a Time Suite for some more gentle sparkle.
The finishing touch is possibly one you only want to do for your nearest ad dearest, but it really does change the project from a nice one to an extraordinary one. The corners from the World of Good Suite are such a great finishing touch and can be added really easily with Glue Dots. But with only 20 Corners in the pack (the other 10 items are Sliders), using 4 is quite generous!
