Make it Monday: Frames


It's the end of the week, but this past week Nichole showed a fantastic video of drawing frames for Clean & Simple cards. She is the Master of these frames and many times I have wondered how she did it. Now we know! :)

I used the following sets: Take Note and Big Birthday Wishes. The 7 and the starburst matted circle are both cut from the cricut. I used Clearly Creative Cardstock for the "Take Note" sentiment (stamped with staz-on)... first time for doing that!! Yea me! and I popped up the 7 for a bit of dimension.

The line was drawn with a green gel pen. I did use Nichole's tip so watch her video here to learn how!

Enjoy!

Love the colored pen! I wondered if gel pens would work...

That is a perfect boy birthday card! And you said you had no boy stuff.... ;)

Great masculine card, Kristin! The colors work so well, and the plaid (I love plaid!) PP, and the frame ties it all together, just like Nicole said it would! :-D

Great card! Love the patterned and matted 7, stamps and your use of a colored gel pen for the frame (it looks cool)!

Perfect card for a 'big' 7 year old boy!! The plaid paper really was a great choice for the number. the frame turned out realy cool as well.

Love the matted number! The patterned paper is great for the 7, and the Take Note pointing to it is clever!!

Cute card Kristin! I like the take note sentiment on clear cardstock. Great idea to use a colored gel pen too.

Fab card, Kristin. Love the idea of using coloured pen for the frame and the clearly creative cardstock is a great touch.
