We know that many of you have been with crafting with us for a long time. But, for those of you who are newer to Anna Griffin, we reconfigured 3 of our favorite large frame dies and re-released them as a new set. Our Anniversary Frame Dies create beautiful, show stopping diecuts that you will want to use again and again. If you don’t have this classic set, you can get it here: https://annagriffin.com/product/anniversary-frame-dies/ on our website.
Get out your set and let’s make 3 cards together!
Die cut your card stock with the quatrefoil die and attach to your card base with foam adhesive.
To create more dimension, use your cut and emboss folders to add a layer behind your frame die with foam adhesive.
Place this double layer on top of your large frame layer.
Finish your card with your choice of floral stickers, a bow and a sentiment.
For our 2nd card, add the quatrefoil layer to the front of an embossed card.
Cut another in a contrasting color and use scissors or a craft knife to shape it into an additional layer.
Choose flowers and a bow that complement your card, and a sentiment that fits your card’s occasion!
Send your card to a friend or family member!
For our last card, add your quatrefoil frame die cut with foam adhesive to a patterned card.
Die cut the harlequin frame die. Trace around the edge onto a contrasting color of card stock. Fussy cut the shape and place it behind the harlequin die cut.
Create a focal point by adding 2 more die cut layers on top. Here we used dies from our Card Making Compendium Set. https://annagriffin.com/product/card-making-compendium-die-set/.
Place flowers behind the frame layer and on top of the compendium layers.
Place your sentiment and finishing touches on your card.
Looking for more ideas with this die set?
Cut two frame dies and cut one in half, then spread it apart to create a larger diecut.
Here’s another way to add a fussy cut layer on top of your frame die.
Adding shadow layers behind your diecuts make them pop!
Let colorful layers peek out from behind your frame dies for a window-like effect.
