I wanted to try making what I’m referring to as “shadow-frame” card fronts. Instead of popping the design up on the front, it’s recessed into the card, kind of like a frame would work. This was my first attempt.
I learned that getting the measurements right can be a bit challenging, and I think I made, and messed up, two versions of this card before I got it right. But, I did really like the way it turned out, and again this is one of those great opportunities to use smaller stamps in your collection.
