Quick Shaped Card Bases using Framelits

Want to do something a little less square for all or some of your Christmas cards this year?

How about a card with a scallop oval border?  You could use any of the nesting framelits, last year I used the labels collection framelits, maybe next year it will be the floral frames.

This is another great card that change the colours and/or the greeting and it can be a thank you, birthday, just for you, wedding, any sort of card.

While this first one took a bit of time to put together with quite a few discarded ovals littering my craft room floor, it's going to be a very quick & easy card to duplicate and make a few of.

When you're cutting the base card use a normal folded card base, this one is a folded A5.  Place the framelit so that a small amount is over the folded edge.  This will mean that when the card is cut that small piece will still hold your card together.

The whisper white layers were cut and then embossed using the Square Lattice Textured Impression Embossing Folder.  Always cut first and emboss second so you don't crush the embossing.
