Easy Framed Card by Bridget Louw

Hi! Couture Creations Designer Bridget Louw here today with a super quick and easy card.

The card measures 7” high x 5” wide.
The white base layer measures 10” x 7” scored at 5”
The darker pink measures 4 7/8” x 6 7/8”
The lighter pink measures 4 ¾” x 6 ¾”

Using the third largest Square Nesting Die, cut a square from dark pink cardstock. Line up the light pink cardstock over the square cutout and die-cut a larger square using the second largest Square Nesting Die.

You should now have a square window cut out with some of the darker pink showing through like a frame.

Using the Thinking of You Embossing Folder, emboss the light pink layer. Cut some marker blending cardstock with the largest Square Nesting Die. Stamp the image you have chosen on the shape and color as desired. 

The next step is to adhere the colored image behind the square gap in the dark pink layer. On top of that, stick down the embossed light pink layer.

I stamped a sweet sentiment onto a piece of cardstock I had cut using a Victorian Rectangle Nesting Die and glued the sentiment on the inside of the card using Foam MountingTape.

Super quick, super easy! I hope you like my card and will try making it with the amazing product range from Couture Creations.
