Challenge Card #18


Travis's (future grand-son- in-law) birthday was this week, so I made him this card.  I learned this technique at the Dream Weaver Class I took in Chicago a few weeks ago.  I loved it then and even more so after creating this card. About any scenery stamp will work.  I didn't add many embellishments or layers as I wanted it to be the main focal point.

Directions for Layering Nested Frames
  1. Lay a piece of removable Tape, sticky side up on the table
  2. Carefully place the three smallest Nesting Frames (Dream Weavers DD001) cutting side up on the tape so I t comes across the middle  of the frames, press them in place lightly so they don't move.
  3. Carefully turn the tape and frames over the front of your image cutting side down and place where you want the frames on the image, gently press the tape to the paper.
  4. Place the dies and paper on the plate of your die cutting machine, cutting side up. Place acrylic plate on top and run this through the machine.
  5. Remove the cut layers from the dies
  6. Place one layer of dimensional foam on the largest frame, then put 2 layers of dimensional foam on the 2nd largest and 3 layers on the smallest.
  7. Add to your cardstock and you have a beautiful focal point for your card.

Thanks for the lovely comment Joan. The photo's don't do justice to how lovely the popped layers look in the real. Love this technique. Hope to make another card with a different stamp. Thanks for getting me to try this fun technique. Big hugs
