Inset Frames - One of A Kind (not!)

Hi Friends!

This weekend flew by, I stamped a little, ran errands, stamped a little more, went out with friends, stamped a little, did housework and laundry, stamped a little more, shopped, stamped a little more, hung out on the internet, stamped a little... whew!  Busy!!  LOL!

This card started out as a card-front that I didn't know what to do with.  I stamped it several weeks ago using the same Markers to Glossy technique that I use a lot (see this link)!

I ended up using 3 of my Rectangle Nesties to cut my image into 4 separate pieces.  I separated out the pieces and prepared them for reassembly!

First, I stamped a sentiment from Stamps of Life "You Are Too Kind" set on the center piece and added adhesive foam tape to the back of it.  I then added foam tape to the middle frame piece. 

Then, I began the reassembly!  I laid down a piece of Pacific Point CS first, then the outer frame of my stamped image.  Next I adhered the raised frame with the foam tape inside of that piece.  I continued with the next two pieces until the image was reassembled.  I attached the whole thing to Old Olive card base and added swirly bling rhinestones by Paper Studio.

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
