Black Distressed Card & Photo Frame

Guest Designer: Steph Ackerman

We have been super excited to spotlight some amazing guest designers! If you have missed their projects, be sure to check here & here. Today, is no exception, meet Steph Ackerman!

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here and I am thrilled to be guest designing for Craftwell today.

I received this awesome Theresa Collins embossing folder - Snapshots.  This embossing folder is  approximately 8 1/2" x 12" - I've not seen one this large before and it's the perfect size for a full sheet of cardstock.   The possibilities are endless with an embossing folder of this size. 

I used Core-dinations cardstock for the base, cutting it to fit my card.  Using the embossing folder, I embossed the cardstock, then used a distressing tool over the embossed images.   I added another sheet of cardstock on top, distressed the edges and wrapped yellow ribbon around the panel.  A birthday cake and coordinating sentiment were stamped and embossed, then die cut to fit the card.

This 8" x 8" square frame also uses Core-dinations cardstock.   I cut out the center then embossed the panel.  I again distressed the entire piece and adhered it to the frame with Mod Podge.  For the opening, I stamped a sentiment with Ann Butler's ColorBox Berry Ink and embossed it with Top Boss Clear Embossing Powder. 

Assorted Prima flowers were inked with Berry Ink and added around the opening. 

I think this would be a perfect gift for the upcoming holidays, don't you?

I Thanks for stopping by today.
