One-Layer Simplicity Challenge #6: I've Been Framed

Finally getting my OLS#6 card posted...sorry it took so long! What a fun use a frame stamp or make a frame somehow on a one-layer card.

I've only got one frame stamp, and I struggled to make something I liked with it. Then, I received an order of Clearly Besotted stamps and had a brainstorm with the Holiday Sentiments set. The stylized pine bough was PERFECT for a frame!

At first, I used one of the three-berry stamps in the center of each side, but the card still needed a little something, so I covered those stamps with red rhinestones, which was just what the doctor ordered.

I adore this card and will make more of them! And I never would have made it if not for this challenge, so thanks, Karen!

  1. Love your stamping - it's perfect. And the rhinestone berries are a great finishing touch.

  2. A great card! Love the berries, and by changing up the sentiment, a great card to duplicate without getting mind numbing :)
