I’d like to share a little card with you that I made featuring a Faux Framelit Layer. So many of you have asked how I managed to get the narrow border on a few of my cards using the Labels Collection Framelit….well here’s how.
Here is my card….stamped with a little cup from the Tea Shoppe Stamp Set and how I made the Framelit Layer....
Notice the slim layer of framelit behind the image piece? Here’s how…
I cut two pieces of Black Cardstock to make the matted piece. Did you know you can cut two at a time with these framelits? You can, how cool is that?
You’ll need 1 image piece and two of the same size for the mat. Cut one mat in half horizontally and the other vertically.
Apply Mono Adhesive to the back of the image piece.
Take one of the half's (in this case the longer one) and lay the image piece on top leaving the amount of mat visible that you want.
Do the same with the opposite side.
It should look like this…
Turn over and apply more Mono Adhesive to the back.
Attach the other two pieces onto the back.
Here is the finished piece. I just have to add dimensionals to the back to pop up my image.
…..and here you go….
Thanks for Stopping by and hope to see you back soon.
