Framed Christmas Card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

Well that was another busy weekend. They do just seem to flash by. On Saturday we cleaned out the bunnies (that takes a while), we worked on the Save the Date cards for the Malta wedding and we booked our accommodation and flights for the same wedding. On Sunday  we went to church for the harvest service then we went to Fleet to take my parents out for lunch and finally we went to Newbury to collect our daughter's hamster, who had died, from our new in-laws. It is a shame that the little hamster didn't last until they returned from their honeymoon. I need the week to get over the weekend.

I was making a card for one of the Design Teams I am on and I made a square frame for the image I was using then I decided a rectangular frame would suit it better. You will be able to see this card on first November. That left me with a rather nice frame.  I hunted through the old cards, that I have a stack of in the spare room, to find some images that might suit the frame.

The frame was cut with the Double Pierced Square dies designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. I used Cherry and Old Gold Centura pearl card the. There is a layer of white glitter card in there to and the card blank was black. 

I thought this image from an old card went well with the frame. 

The banner came from another card. 

A nice simple make I just couldn't waste that frame. I have used all my sheets of Cherry card now I think I will have to order some more. 

Have a great week. 

Happy Crafting

  16. What a gorgeous card Jackie and great use of that frame. I often die cut items only for them not to be used on that particular project but they're useful to have in a bag for future projects. Hope you've managed some rest so far. Shabneez x
