There is an awesome frame stamp from Gina K. Designs which is a great base for doing a gorgeous card design and it can be done for any occasion. I chose a Christmas theme. This frame stamp is available in the Fabulous Frames set illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger. I chose to do some piecing with pattern papers from Gina K. Designs and also to do some stamping of the nativity scene images from the City of David set from Gina K. Designs.
The nativity scene was stamped directly on to the pattern paper. I stamped those silhouette stamps in Gina K. Designs Christmas Pine dye ink. With an oval die from Cheery Lynn Designs I cut out the sentiment which is authored personally by me and printed out with my computer. Then around the sentiment I added Mini Gem Lines stickers to frame it. I think those tiny little gems are hard to place by my arthritic fingers as it seems I got them sort of crooked. But, that is okay too! I still like it.
My inside of the oval design and the outer parts of the frame were colored with Bic Mark-It alcohol ink pens.
We are still waiting for the wind, cold and snow to arrive. I thought I would work on a Christmas card today instead of baking. I wanted to use this City of David set again even though I used it many times last year and the year before. It is a favorite of mine as well as the new frame sets.
I hope you are having a good Saturday. I know mine is going quite well and I seem to be in a holiday mood as well today. But I resisted putting the Christmas CDs on. I will try to wait until after Thanksgiving to do that. LOL
Take care and God bless,
