Hello! Samantha here with you today. I the look of lots of nesting dies layered up to create a frame for a stamped image. However, getting that look can sometimes get a bit expensive. I own a few nesting dies, but sometimes the shape just isn’t right for my image, and I don’t always want to go out and buy a die that will work. In those cases, I’ve found that pieces of patterned paper with journaling cards printed on them can give you the same layered/framed effect. Here’s the piece of paper I used to create the frame for my stamped image on my card today:
And here’s my card:
I really love the briefcase from Dad’s Tools, so I chose that image for my main piece. To bring the briefcase even more into focus, I stamped it on a wood grain paper, cut it out, and adhered it with foam dimensional adhesive to the center of the card.
Thanks for stopping by Stamp School today!
