Framed Paper

Good morning

Today I want to show you a quick and easy way to make a frame out of cardstock using a file from  LisaJane.  Since I've become a member of the DT I am loving all the crafty projects I've come up with for her.

The frame measures 6 x 6
I got this using some pretty heavy 
cardstock with my E-Craft

Isn't the detail marvelous?
I added scoretape to 3 sides of the frame
and adhered it the the same colored 
cardstock as my backing
Then I cut a piece of the same cardstock
at 5 x 5.  This will be your frame stand.  
I scored it point to point and added 
scoretape to half of the stand
then adhered it to the backside of the frame.
I colored the flowers and leaves with 
some colored pencils to give it just
the right amount of coloring.
Since I wanted to use this black and white
photo of my kids when they were little
I didn't want the coloring to be overpowering

If you are interested in purchasing this file 
you can head over to her shop and grab it up.
