Amore Frame

I made this card awhile ago, and it has been sitting in the draft queue patiently waiting its turn on the blog :)  It's a fairly simple card, and I love the striking color combo.  The large frame in the Amore Frame clear stamp set from Stampendous is pretty perfect for creating a great focal image on cards! Here's how I did it:

  • Cut card base to 6" square; cut black card stock panel to 5" square and gently tear bottom 1/2" or so off.
  • Stamp large frame in silver ink, emboss using detail silver embossing powder.  Repeat process for swirl image in each lower corner. 
  • Smear Versamark ink along torn bottom edge (from ink pad directly to card stock). Apply Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel, heat from below until melted.   
  • Randomly sprinkle Shabby White Embossing Enamel on black card stock, heat from below until melted.
  • Stamp sentiment with Versamark ink inside frame; cover with Baby Blue embossing powder and heat set from underneath. 
  • Attach black card stock to card base using foam tape or other dimensional adhesive.
That's it!! Quick and easy, with loads of texture!
