Wedding Anniversary Gift

Frame1

Yay, the second frame is done! This one was made as a wedding anniversary gift to myself and my hubby. I really like how this one turns out, and am seriously thinking I can start making these frames to sell in our christmas craft fairs this year, which by the way, my mom and I will be selling our sock animals and handmade cards at Dunbar Community and South Arm Community in November! No more table at Steveston Community because it happens to fall on the same day as Dunbar.

I used the Secret Garden and the Banner Greetings stamp sets. The Banner Greetings is a hostess set. What this means is that if you spend $200 or more on Stampin’ Up! products with me, you can get at least $35 hostess dollars for free, and you can use $10 hostess dollars to get Banner Greetings . I tried to create a more three-dimensional effect within the shadow frame by curling the petals and the banner a bit.

I’m not sure if you can tell in this picture that the banner has been heat embossed. I tried using gold ink before, but it just didn’t do it for me. What a big difference embossing with gold powder!
