The frames I got at good ole Wally World for $3. The window on the frame is 5x12, and that's how big I cut the DSP in the back to start. The alphabet is Letter Press (ret.) again. The tiny alphabet (used to stamp merry) is an SU set so old, I don't even have sticker anymore. I used the new SU snowflake punch, the Ticket Corner punch and some bling. I had fun making this one! You can see I triple matted my letters. To do this, I measure my first layer of CS 1 1/4 by 2 1/4. The other layers increase 1/4 inch each time. Sometimes I double mat the letters, but for these I liked the triple matting better. The DSP in the back is from my LSS.
Any larger alphabet will do----and if you are a club member of mine and would like to borrow my stamp set, I will loan it to ya for a week so you can make some too!
Come back tomorrow for one more similar to this!
Boutique update: I am feverishly creating and Cookie let me know that some of the helpers who come to prepare the boutique have already purchased some of my items, so I am selling before the boutique opens! Hooray! I have a few more days to craft away, so off I go!
A wonderful sweet friend of mine recently gave me this quote......." A handmade card is a hug with a fold in the middle!" Don't you love it? Thanks Kathie! Now get out there and mail someone a hug!
