Default Framing a Picture Question

I would like to include my daughter's photo in a few cards. I tried but could not get a good framed look. What do you use to outline your photo, once you have cut the appropriate size hole in the card?

Thanks,
GlennaF

I have done photo cards before using the Coluzzle templates. I cut a sheet of printed paper to frame the photo. We will call this the mat. Place the photo behind the mat. Then I cut the hole in the card a little larger than the hole in the mat. When the photo and mat are placed behind the
card, you get the appearance of a matted and framed picture. Here is and example:

the next to the last card on this page is done with that mat thing. Hopefully your can see what I am talking about. The black is directly behind the brown card. the horse image is behind that.
I have also decorated the edges with trim. I found something called stick stiches at Walmart.

the first card on this page has the sticky stitches. The yellow layer is behind the orange layer.

SU!'s Fun Frames fit on the front of a card and can be stamped and attached with eyelets. I like the way this looks. I also like when the card is vertical and 2 frames are placed inside the card. It can set on a table or shelf just like any other framed pictures. I think I'm going to do something similar for Christmas cards this year.
