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.

  5. This card came out really well. I have to admit that your scoring makes me think of a potting shed that I'm getting a glimpse into. Lovely!
