I’ve been thinking about creating a small photo frame for a while, as I’m sending prints to my grandma from time to time and she doesn’t have enough frames to showcase all her favorite pictures. I received a summer dress from her as a gift recently and I will be mailing this card with a picture of me in this dress. So it will be a ‘Thank you’ card and photo frame all at once.
It was one of those light-bulb moments when an idea just appeared on its own and I decided to make a card that will also serve as a photo frame.
Here I recycled an invitation sample by Wedding Paper Divas from their promo kit. I cut out the oval shape in the middle to make the opening, that will be framing pictures, and colored flowers with my Copic Sketch markers. I attached floral frame to the shimmery gray cardstock with the same oval opening and then added violet backing in a manner that is typically used for creating envelopes. So the bottom part and sides are glued together and there is an opening on top, so that you can slide a photo down inside this frame.
I’ve been having this ‘Thank you!’ sticker for a long time, that I even can’t tell where it comes from. Die-cut label is by Spellbinders.
I was inspired mostly by two challenges: CAS on Sunday Challenge #88 – Thank You and Uniko challenge #34 – Flowers. I will be also entering this card in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Anything goes.
