would this card not work if you put your picture directly onto the card then placed the oval cut outs on the top?

This is one of the greatest tutorials I have seen! Just love all your great ideas.

That is so cool!

Just when I think you can't impress me anymore than you already do!  This is such a cool technique!  Thanks Gina for always introducing me to more stamping fun!  You rock!-----Kim  :)

So much easier than I thought it would be.  Quite elegant looking.  Really like and will make this card and order this flower set too.  Thanks, Gina!

Allison the spellbinders sizing chart is under shop in the menu section up top :)

Gina! WOW! Great card! Wonderful tutorial!!!! One thing that has confused me is the spellbinders dies. I went out and bought, for example, a set of Small Oval Nestabilities. I was confused at the way they didn't offer the layering, like this card suggests. So, I now see you need a set of small and large shapes to get that prper layering, correct? I believe I've seen a compatabilty list that states this-which die coordinates with which- somewhere, but can't find it again. Any suggestions-anybody?? As they are pricey-and I don't want to purchase the wrong ones! Great idea on the framing of cards, artwork, etc., with this technique. My own matting, if you will. Especially tone on tone, as is white on white, etc., and also the square dies for traditional matting Thanks for so many tech tips in one video! (and thanks for letting me know which Copic is that nice light shader! TFS! Your the BOMB!

So pretty, I always wondered how this worked, thanks so much for sharing!

Ohh, yes!  I love this and I know I'm going to be using this video and technique quite a bit in the next week, and then often afterwards as I have some of my own artwork that I like to use on cards, little watercolors and such, with this frame, I am going to just love it! Thanks, I must admit though, I have a cuddlebug, but I super super need to get that swiss dot embossing folder, I love that too!  Thanks so much for this one!

What a beautiful card Gina.  Love the technique - as you mentioned - would work great for framing photos for desk top, tables, etc.  Can't wait to give this a try.  Thanks for sharing.
