Father's Day Frame

It's time for another challenge with Our Creative Corner! Where does the time go? This week our hostess, Linda Coughlin, is challenging us to incorporate a 3D frame on our projects. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, then I saw the Father's Day frame in the summer mini and decided to CASE that idea, but with my own paper frame. We'll be making this at my club this weekend.

To make the frame I cut two 3/4" x 4" strips and two 3/4" x 5" strips from Early Espresso textured card stock. I mitered the corners by trimming off each of the ends and fitting them together - and seeing that it was tricky with paper, I don't think I'll ever be doing it with wood! LOL! It's probably hard to see but I sponged all around the frame and mitered corners to give it more dimension, and the fram is popped up from its background. I made the shirt with Pear Pizazz designer paper and card stock, then added one of the ties from the Best Dad Ever set. This is a big card - 5 x 7 - which it had to be with the size of the frame. The background is simple - white card base, a strip of pear card stock wrapped with baker's twine, and a sentiment from the same stamp set with a row of piercing underneath.

Don't forget to stop by the OCC blog and see what everyone has made for this challenge - and then make your own frame and join us! Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!

I LOVE it! I love how you made the shirt out of cardstock and added the stamped and paper pieced the tie! And the frame is a real 'frame'. :)

Lori, your simple "wooden" frame is so perfect for a Father' Day card. That shirt is totally adorable. Love the colors and the addition of the baker's twine is the perfect finishing touch!

Hope you had a great weekend!

Hugs,
