Corner Frame Tutorial

The other day I shared THIS card and told you I had a tutorial to follow. You'll love how simple this is to create.

Before I begin I just want to define a few terms I will refer to using the Spellbinders die cuts and the wizard.

Definitions:
a) stack: the combination of accessories for cutting or embossing
b) plate: the thick white plastic board
c) tan mat: rubber mat used for embossing
d) cardstock: paper
e) nestabilities: metal dies used for cutting
f) shim: the thin white plastic board used to assist in the cutting process

1) Cut the rectangle using your wizard or cuttlebug. Stack: plate, cardstock, nestabilities, shim and plate.



2) Line up the nestabilities. Using the largest rectangle from the "classic rectangle, small" paired with the "small labels" nestabilities I was able to create a unique frame and corner for my stamped image.



Now stack: plate, tan mat, cardstock, nestabilities, and plate. Run through the Wizard.





And this is the result!



I just love how it has framed this image!



Simple right?? Have fun creating your unique borders using a combination of nestabilities.

Have a terrific day. Stay tuned for a card that I created for a fun challenge.
