Here are two more Christmas cards that I am using this year:
Ink--Passport Green (Inkredible!)
Other--Joy and Cheer embossing folder, corner round punch,
markers, star embellishment (Michael's $ bin)
Stamp--Stampin' Up (sentiment), Clear Stamps
Ink--Adirondack Denim, Staz-On Forest Green
Other--Snowflakes embossing folder, snowflake garland, silver half metals
Do you see that on both cards the embossing is around the border
and the middle is left unembossed?
This creates an area that can easily be used for stamping.
Now, how is that done?
It is very easy if you have a Frame-It's Kit.
Set #1, which is the one I have, includes:
--1 circle Frame-It
--1 oval Frame-It
--1 square Frame-It
--1 rectangle Frame-It
--Complete directions for use with the Cuttlebug machine
--1 extra shim (space if needed) I did not use it.
They are 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inch pieces of chipboard to be used for a
standard A-2 size card.
You place one on top of the embossing folder so that this area
is not embossed as it goes
through the Cuttlebug.
This visual will help:
- A Plate
- Embossing folder with cardstock in folder, close folder
- Layer Frame-It on top of closed folder and center it on cardstock. That it easy since it is the same size.
- Put C Plate on top of that. My C Plate is very marred up so I did not photograph this step.
- Roll through Cuttle to emboss.
- ( Since all Cuttlebug machines have varying spaces between the rollers, it may be necessary to add the thin shim provided to add a bit more pressure . Place any shim needed on top of C Plate. )
This is what it will look like when you take it apart!
Frame-It's can be used with any manual embossing/die cutting machine
such as Sizziz, Big Shot, Cuttlebug, Wizard, etc.
Frame-It's are made in the USA--yeah!
I purchased mine last year at a
stamp show for $6.95.
(I did not get paid to tell you about this product!)
I hope you are having a nice week-end--
next Saturday will be Christmas Eve!
