An You've Got This and Flourishing Phrases Framed Art

I have not done a 3-D stamped item in a very long time.  So, I thought I would give it a try.  I had gotten some fun frames at The Dollar Store and I thought I'd have some fun.

I took a piece of decorative paper from the "Blossoms & Bliss" pack and cut it to the size of the mat that came with the frame.  I ran tape all across the back of the paper.  Then I set it on top of the mat and pressed it in place.  Then I took my craft knife and cut out the center opening.  

I took a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped the background that comes with the  "You've Got This" set.  Then I stamped the flower and fussy cut it out.  I don't cut perfect though it looks like I do.  There is a secret to that. First of all you do need to cut as close to the edge of the lines as possible.  It always seems like there's some white showing and that's okay.  After you color in your image then you take a black marker and run it along the edges of the image.  All of those irregular cut marks just blend in.  Give it a try, you'll be amazed.

The words are from the "Flourishing Phrases" stamp set.  They just seemed to be perfect for the person I'm going to give this to.

I did have fun making this and I think I'm going to see what other stuff I have sitting in drawers in my workroom. I'm sure there's LOTS of 3-D art stuff in them!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
