Today Melanie will show you a simple way to fill your backgrounds with the curved and straight borders from Fabulous Frame Filers, whether you are creating your own patterned papers, single layer card bases or adding to the Fabulous Frame stamp. This is a very festive card that is easily mass produced for the upcoming holidays with no (or very little) layering, requiring minimal cardstock and no extra postage! She’ll do some stamping off to create the two colors of stripes and a little masking. This design can be adapted to other holidays by switching up the border, belly band fillers and colors. Coloring the flower takes 4 minutes. Stamping the background takes minutes and starts 9:00 at in the video.
