Happy Saturday, peeps! Those sweet girls over at Our Creative Corner have asked me to be a guest designer today!!
The challenge is “Embellished Frames”…..make it any shape, but the frame should be the first thing you see! I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder to make my “wooden” frame from Chocolate Chip cardstock. I am glad I never took wood shop; I would have gotten an “F” on making mitered corners!! Here’s my square “framed” Father’s Day card:

Teeny Tiny Wishes provided the sentiment, adhered over one of the Itty Bitty Banners images, then I added some jumbo eyelets with my Crop-a-dile, and it was done! Since the card is square, the banner poking out on the side still allows it to fit into a standard-sized envelope. I stamped a nice Verve sentiment on the inside:
Doesn’t everybody chill out with their foot up on their trike, surveying the newly-mown lawn?!
