PTI MIM #263: Background Building With Frames

Amy Sheffer shared with us how to build a background using frame die-cuts for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday. Didn't think I'd find time to attempt this technique as we had a busy week. We also drove to Richland, WA for the weekend to meet up with other relatives to watch two nephews (Senior & Sophomore) from Idaho participate in a Cross-Country Track Meet Saturday. The Senior finished second in his division so that was a very proud moment. Enough of my life...now on to my card.




Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments. 


Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)


Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, Clear Vellum and Sheer Basics Vellum
Ink: VersaMark, Kraft, Dark Chocolate, Canyon Clay, Terracotta Tile and Distress Mustard Seed
Stamps: Give Thanks
Dies: Take Three and Give Thanks
Other: Zing! Copper Metallic Embossing Powder, Copper Brads, Ink Blending Tools, Micro Glue Dots, and SU Dimensionals

Amazing card Kathy. I love the vellum...it doesn't cover up your well placed frames!
Love the wheat and acorn embellishments!

We both used the Take 3 die--great minds think alike! Beautiful ink blending! One of my best friends from high school lives in Richland.

What a pretty card - the design and colors look lovely with the vellum and gold embossing. I never thought to use Take 3 as my die. This is why I love seeing what others make.

Vellum doesn't work as well for me as it did for you here~such a great card! I love acorns and this is a set I've overlooked...adding to my virtual cart. :)
