TLC713 ~ Simple Self-Framing ~ {10/22/2018}
2 Attachment(s)
Happy Monday to you all. It's my turn to host this week, and I have a simple self-framing challenge with two options for you - you can either pop up the centre OR the frame. My samples show both ways.

Either way, you start with a stamped panel and die-cut a frame, keeping both pieces. I've used rectangular dies, but you could equally well use circles or ovals or....
  • Die-cut a frame (or layer to match the centre piece) from thin chipboard or foam and stick it to the stamped piece.
  • Reassemble the panel on your card base. Essentially it's the Eclipse method on a large scale.
  • I like to sponge the edges for a little extra definition.



Don't do what I did, and after repeatedly telling myself to make sure the inside of the leafy panel was matching the frame, I went ahead and did it the wrong way round :roll:. At least it doesn't really show - it would have mattered far more with the roses card!

Have fun and then please come and share your creations here.

Here's a link to our TLC713 Simple Self-Framing gallery

Here are my two versions.

TLC713 Owl Say... (frame popped up)

Thank you Sabrina for this challenge so I could use the last piece of shaving cream...I'll need to make some more!!

This was fun; wish I'd chosen a more subtle background, though...

Thank you for taking a look!

Mine did not have as much depth as I wanted so, I ended up pulling it off and adding some foam dots. ( probably should have inked the edges but, forgot) :)

Thanks for an easy one Sabrina,

here is mine

Thanks, Sabrina! I had a lot of fun! My daughter said she liked it when she saw it so that is something! :)

Thought this would be easy until I decided to use the fancy frame. But I am pleased with the results! Thanks for the fun Sabrina!

Sabrina, this is a GREAT technique. I don't know why i never ever thought of doing this but it looks fabulous. Thank you so much for bringing this forward to us. Love this. Petal Garden Sympathy

I just need to embellish mine yet, although I'm wondering if I did it backward? I popped up the outside frame and left the die cut on the bottom layer.

Kathy, I gave both options so that people could do whichever they preferred/looked better with their chosen design. So my samples showed both ways. I reckon the roses would have looked good either way but the owl one definitely needed the outer frame popped up. I'll keep a look out for yours later!

Here's my self framed card....fun idea.

A Well Dressed Thank You

Not totally happy with this. Loved the background and frame, but spent way too much time trying to embellish!

I made a double frame, using a shaped die, though they are two-tone in color. I stamped them with a smaller flower around the edges, distressed them with charcoal ink, and layered them one on top the other. Here is my card: Thinking You Much Better Real Soon!
