My project today is a poinsettia paper flowers basket with a double matted frame made using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps. For this arrangement I only used the smallest flower section in the Poinsettia #2 set and paired it with the Baskets, Holly #1 and Greenery #1. The frame was made using the Nested Rectangle Small Stitch set. I used to make almost all my cards with frames like this and I had forgotten how much I like they way they look.
The Double Matted Frame
- Line the dies and and cardstock on the cutting platform and run through the machine.
- Cut the large frame using white cardstock and the mat using red cardstock.
- Attach the two frames together using strips of mounting tape.
- Use an additional layer of mounting tape on the back of the frames to attach them to the card base.
- Note: I like separating the frames with mounting tape because I think they look far more interesting than being attached flat together and adds another element of dimension.
The Poinsettia Paper Flowers Basket
- Cut the basket and foliage using green cardstock, the flowers using red cardstock and the tiny flower centers using yellow cardstock.
- Place the flowers face down on the molding pad and form the flowers using the large round stylus.
- Turn the flowers face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of each using the small tipped stylus.
- Attach the flower sections together using glossy accents.
- Tuck the basket in behind the frame and attach to the card base using mounting tape.
- Apply glossy accents to the poinsettias and attach them to the card base.
- Tuck pieces of holly and evergreen branches under the poinsettias and attach them using glossy accents.
