I absolutely love using frames to showcase my favorite ephemera, and the Spellbinders Fluted Classics Rectangle Die Set is perfect for creating beautiful frames with minimal effort. Just take a look at the picture below! By running three dies through my die cutting machine in one go, I was able to create a stunning frame. I then added it to my dry embossed A2 Fern card base using the In the Pines Embossing Folder. It's such a simple and fun way to add an extra touch of elegance to my crafting projects. Use your gelly roll been in gold to add more details to the embossing and frame. A quick hot foil stamped sentiment from the Make It Merry Etched Dies with those beautiful Make It Merry Die Cut Flowers(sold out). The Spellbinders Make It Merry Etched Dies from the Make It Merry Collection would be a great substitute for the flowers.Make It Merry Etched Dies I used those same dies to hot foil stamp the background in the green frame(pictured below).
