Today I’m sharing a project that showcases my pretty vases of flowers with layered die cut frames.  I use frames on almost every card I make because I love the dimension they add to the project. Adding a layer of color to the white frame and using that color again on the base layer creates another element of interest to the card.  For this project I used the Rubbernecker Nested Scallop with Holes, Rectangle Combo OPC #4, Vases and Shelves, Leaves and Greenery, Small Flowers #3 and Small Flowers #1.

Layered die cut frames add so much interest to the main focal image on card fronts.  Click on the picture to see how I created this lovely card.

The Vases of Flowers

  • Use yellow and aqua cardstock to cut the vases.
  • Cut the foliage using green cardstock and the flowers using bright pink and aqua cardstock.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the foliage to the back of the vases using glossy accents.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the small flowers to the foliage.
  • Finish by adding white pre made white Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops to the larger flowers.

The Layered Die Cut Frames

  • Cut the Nested Scallop layer and Rectangle Combo frames using white cardstock.
  • Use aqua cardstock to cut the rick rack layer of the Rectangle Combo and the frame base layer.
  • Turn the white Rectangle Combo layers face down and attach them together using double stick tape.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the Nested Scallop layer.
  • Attach the frame layers to the aqua base layer using double stick tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the completed frame and base and attach it to the white card base.
  • Apply a thin layer of glossy accents to the aqua rick rack layer and attach it to the frame.
  • Finish the card by applying mounting tape to the back of the vases of flowers and attach them inside the frame opening.

Do you like to use layered die cut frames on your projects?  I sure do!  Rubbernecker has several great dies that cut frame layers.  I’ve listed them all in the links below.  You can use each one of the sets to create a layered frame like I used for my project today.  Please check out my Frame Category if you would like more inspiration.  And, you can never go wrong by checking out Pinterest for more inspiration. Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
