365 Cards - Day 48 Score A Pattern
Here's my card for today's score-it challenge...a simple frame around my image. I constructed a template using two pieces of tagboard. I used a stylus to trace around each of the rectangles, which created my frame. The image is one that I received in a stamped image swap so I don't know the name or manufacturer. I used prisma colors and OMS to color it. I'm finding that each time I try this technique, it gets easier. I think this coloring technique will be one I use often! I mounted the image on a scrap of red stardreams paper and attached a red bow. A simple, easy card to brighten someone's day. Here's the template I made (I drew pen lines around the smaller rectangle to make it easier to see.) The larger one is 3.5 by 5 inches. The smaller one is 2.5 by 4 inches. This makes a .5 inch frame around the image. I mounted the smaller on top of the larger, then placed the FRONT side of the card touhing the tagboard template for embossing the lines.
