Simple frame card


This month the was sponsored by Fred she said, you can find there store here, 

Our theme was use something purple and Halloween. For this card I used Tonic classic card stock for my base in Amethyst Purple, I then used a purple card stock from Craft Sensations  for my layer and main card front.

The papers I chose were Painterly Pastel papers, a direct link to them in the store is here,

I cut out three large frame dies, one middle frame and several small frames from each paper and kept the inside of each frame for later.

I arranged the three large frames on my cardstock.

I wanted to use the innards of the frames so I went about cutting them to fit inside the various frames. I mixed and matched the colours filling the frames.

Next I started layering different parts of different frames on top of each other at different parts of the design and also double layering for an interesting effect.

Along the bottom I arranged three of the smallest frame interlinking but at an angle. The cardstock below I left its original colour.

I used a die from Spellbinders which cuts and embosses to die cut the banner. I found a piece of purple card in my scraps folder as well as some white and die cut the banner twice.

I fussy cut the center out and stamped a sentiment using my Wiggly words stamps from Creative. The ink I stamped with was Versafine Onyx Black.

I used Cosmic shimmer glue to attach the white layer into the purple banner and attached it to my design with foam pads. I positioned it across the three small frames.

The purple enamel dot is By Craft Consortium and the Gift of giving collection found here,

I then mounted the card topper onto my base using foam pads.

To finish I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in the colours: Auburn Pearl, Apple Green and Bottle Green.

I love the effect this card has, it feels like you are looking through a spooky dimension at swirling gasses.

Thank you for joining me again this month, I really appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog.

Happy Crafting and for those that celebrate it, Happy Halloween
