Crafty Frame & Card



Boy, did I ever have fun making this! It took me awhile but, I thought it came out cute!


I got the wood frame on clearance at Michael's several months ago for $1. It doesn't have glass in it, but, I'll cut a piece of acetate to go over the picture. I wanted to leave that off while I photographed it. I used the paper from the Crafty Secrets Classic Paper Pad, I just LOVE this pretty paper! The flowers are punched with my SU! 5 petal flower punch and my 1/2" circle punch. I sponged the edges of the flower with Walnut Distress ink and I sprayed them with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist, ahhhhhhh, so sparkly! You can see it better in the closeup picture. I got the pearl stamens at a yard sale for .25 and they worked perfect for my flowers!

The name plate is stamped with the Baby Girl set from Crafty Secrets, I used that set to make the card too. See the Cherub? Yep, she's from the Cherubs set. I stamped her 3 times, twice on CS and once on vellum. On the stamp, there is a tied bow she is holding. When I cut her out I omitted the bow and made my own with taffeta ribbon, I put my heat gun to it to give it some waves. I colored one cherub with my Copic markers, cut her out and cut out another and the wings from the vellum. I glued two of the cherubs together to make her thicker, threw some Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the wings, glued them on and she was done. The frame is sprayed with the Glimmer Mist too.




The card is made with the same paper, I used the Baby Girl set. This frame and card would make a sweet gift for a new mother and her baby girl. I put a picture of Jayde in it that I printed with the antique setting.

Get your stuff to make these from the stores below!!


I hope y'all have a super day, thanks for stopping by!!
