Folded Frame For Dimension

With the woodgrain pattern paper from the Frostwood Lodge DSP I created a fun frame with just a few quick folds to showcase my focal point.  All you do is score 1/8" and 1/4" on all four sides, snip out the four corners, then fold up on the 1/4" and back on the 1/8" scorelines.
My favorite part of the card is the added bling (Basic Rhinestones) which peak through the Mica Flakes.  The Quilted Ribbon also adds a soft texture and a welcoming feeling.  The images are all from the Christmas Lodge stamp set.  When I work with this set I always seem to want to layer the images.  It just jives for me and makes me a happy stamper.  Embossing folders also make me a happy stamper.  The base of this card was textured with the new Starburst folder from the Holiday Mini Catalog.

Happy Christmas card makin', Elizabeth
