Handmade Birthday Card with Stampin' Up! Fabulous Florets

Isn't this a cool frame?  It's made by placing 2 of the Apothecary Accents Framelits dies on the same sheet of paper and running through the Big Shot at the same time.  (Tip:  Use removable tape to hold the frames in place on the paper)
I cut a second large medallion with Very Vanilla and did the stamping on that.  Line up the frame on top of the floral stamped image and use your Stamp a ma jig to stamp the greeting.  All edges have been sponged with Soft Suede ink. Then add the frame on top using Stampin dimensionals.  You can't really see that dimension in this photo, but trust me, it looks really cool in person and is worth the extra effort.  The string of pearls I added to the blue punched border are only 7 pearls long on each side.  You don't want to waste the pearls in the middle that won't be seen.  After tying the bow, adhere it with mini-glue dots and snail adhesive.
Catherine Pooler has a great video for this frame.  Mine is an easier version, but you should check out her video.
Make sure you check out all my DEALS below!
And make it a FABULOUS day!
