Die: Lea'bilities, I like these dies because the frame cuts away from the panel so it was easy to heat emboss the frames and attach to the panel and have it all as one layer. Tape holds them together on the back. Each panel is popped up with foam tape.
Other tool: The Perfect Ruler fromPerfect Paper Crafting to cut the 1/6" strip of cardstock to act as a border to the border stamp panel. I attached with Aleene's tacky glue and I cut the strip to avoid adding bulk under the die cut panels.
The image panel was lightly stenciled with a plastic stipple tool.
