Clean&Simple 203

I found a new challenge blog that I am in love with, Clean and Simple Stamping.  The sketches are right up my alley!  Here is the sketch that I worked on last week and the card I came up with:

For the frame, I was able to use two of the dies from the Apothecary Accents Framelits.  First I cut the outside of the frame in Early Espresso Core'dinations Cardstock, which is brand new to the Holiday Catalog.  That stuff is awesome and I can't wait to get the other two colors that are being offered, Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green.  Then I stuck the smaller tag die to it with two small post-it-notes to hold it in place and ran it through the Big Shot.  After I had my framer, I embossed it with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and sanded it with sanding blocks (both also new to the Holiday Catalog).  I think it looks awesome and really looks like a wooden frame!  If you are coming to Stamp Camp tonight, this is another one of the cards we will be making. :)
