My Creative Time ~ Throwback Thursday ~ "Frame"

Hello ~ and welcome to another My Creative Time Throwback Thursday! This challenge Emma has asked us to create a project using a FRAME from a "older" Cricut cartridge! There are so many frames out there it is incredible! I have to say very hard to choose from because they all have such unique features. Come play along with us and link your wonderful creation to Mr. Linky over at My Creative Time by Wednesday, May 9th. We can't wait to see what you create!

For today's card I have decided to use the cartridge Elegant Edges  ~ frame from page 31. There a lot of frames on this cartridge. I cut my frame out @ 4 inches ~ 4 times. I wanted to make it pop and give it some dimension so it looked like an actual frame. I then cut the same frame @ 3.76 inches so it had a trim piece on the inside. I used my embossing folder to make it look like wood and inked it up just a tad. I adhered clear acetate for the glass illusion. I stamped my background paper and added the bow, again for the illusion that you could hang this on a wall. My little flowers are from Emma's "NEW" release! I just LOVE that die! These are out of fabric. I can't stop making flowers or using fabric to make them. Click here to see the video Emma did showing us how to use fabric.  I know I am going to sound like a broken record but these new flower dies are so easy, quick and fun to play with! I will list all the materials below!
