Make It Monday #37: Layered Mats and Frames



Dawn's video this week is one of my favorite techniques. Here is the link to PTI: http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2011/10/make-it-monday-37-layered-mats-and-frames.html

It is just such a cool look- frames from dies. Okay so if you follow my blog, you know I love simple and elegant. This card is definitely simple but I wanted the frame and the clear embossing in the background to be the main focus. In the background I used Harvest Berries & Versa Mark on Enchanted Evening (my favorite PTI color), then embossed with clear EP (also one of my favorite techniques). I used Mat Stack 4 and the inside is fillable frame 10, the two just go perfectly together. Lemon Tart ribbon and CS, both from PTI.
