Click Here. I thought that the frame she made was so neat! I had some of the the 2 in 1 border punches from EK Success, so I thought that would be perfect for this card. I started out by cutting the purple cardstock 5 1/4" square. Then I set the punch at the #1 setting (which cuts out the entire heart chain shape). I punched the middle of two ends of the paper. Then I flipped the paper over and lined up the edge of the punch to the edge of the card. Then I moved the punch about 1/8" in so the cut wasn't to the end of the paper. Once the first one is cut, line up the edge of the punch with the last punch. Again I lined it up on the back side of the punch so I could see clearly where the punch would be made. Then repeat on the opposite side. Now I have a border with a solid purple square in the center of the frame. I then used the small violet stencil for my image. I first measured the purple center, then cut my white piece 1/4" smaller. So if the center was 2 3/4", then cut the white paper 2 1/2" square. I used Black glossy paste over then stencil. Once the paste was dry, I placed the clean stencil back over the image. I used the Pallete Stamp and Stick Glue Pad and daubed ink over the paste. Then I used the 1/4" Stencil brush and brushed on some F/X powder over the violets. Then I popped up the violets in the center of the frame, matted the frame and layered it onto a card. Hope this inspired you today! Be sure to see what the Dream Team has done for you this week too.
