Hello! With moving last month and then some postal problems (i.e. not getting products in a timely manner) I didn't get a chance to share my card with the Reverse Confetti Forest Friends Stamp Set. This adorable set is still available at Simon Says Stamp while supplies last!
I love framing up images. It's a great way to immediately make stamped designs the star of the card! I used the awesome Simon Says Stamp Quadrangle Frames Dies die cut from gold foil cardstock to frame up the critters and fall images from the Forest Friends Stamp Set for my card share today. The Thankful greeting die cut from the same gold foil cardstock and the gold embossed greeting underneath pair up for the perfect sentiment.
I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Quadrangle Frames Dies from gold foil cardstock and smooth white cardstock, making sure to keep the small white cardstock pieces to inlay later on. On the white cardstock "solid" or inside frame pieces I stamped the images from the Forest Friends Stamp Set using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. I colored in the images with Copic Markers, adding detail to the eyes with black and white glaze pens and detail to other elements with the Stardust Glitter Pen.
Setting the frame components aside for a moment, I carefully masked and stamped a greeting from the Forest Friends Stamp Set along the bottom edge of the card using Versamark Ink and heat embossing with gold embossing powder. I stamped the trio of stars from the same stamp set and embossed those as well.
I assembled the frames on the card base as shown, inlaying all the small white cardstock pieces to give the illusion another "frame" is behind the first.
I finished the card with a sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh 10mm, 6mm, and 4mm Sparkling Clear sequins, 4mm Metallic Gold sequins, and Mini Gold Star Confetti.
