Wild Rose frame made using Art Nouveau and Fancy Frames cartridges.

Hello, friends!

I have something a little out of the box today. I made a few frames using the Fancy Frames cartridge and the Art Nouveau cartridge. Now I know what you are thinking, "Melanie, what would I do with this frame because it is made out of paper?". Yes, it is made out of paper, but it is attached to a cheap frame I bought from a discount store. Therefore, it has good stability. You can also use modge podge to give it some heft. As for what you would do with it, I think this would be great for a wedding/baby  shower with a picture of the guest of honor in the center. If you go the modge podge route it can go on a wall or a table top and last for sometime!

I used Close to My Heart and Coredinations cardstock.
I cut the frame out at 7 3/4"using the Fancy Frames cartridge and the roses out at 6" using the Art Nouveau cartridge.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!! See you back here tomorrow!!

So pretty! I have never really been too attracted to the Art Nouveau cartridge, but didn't realize, I guess, it had such pretty flowing flowers. :D Thanks for the frame idea. :D I may have to look closer at this cart.

I made some frames using Fancy Frames cart and mounted them on thin cardboard and then just hung them on the wall with glue dots. They look great and have had many compliments. I may just add some flowers from Art Nouveau cart after seeing how nice yours are-thanks for the idea!!
