How about a quick and elegant frame ornament?

 I have been wanting to do some frame ornaments of my girls pictures and I came up with this fast and easy project. I die cut the frames with the Accucut die Frame charms and Frame charms back. I used Bear cub paper from Raisin Boat's Boat house collection to die cut the frames and backs. I then arranged the stamps ( Joyful Love and some from Damask Elegance from Raisin Boat Stamps), on a clear block to make my own back ground stamp.I inked it up with versa mark ink and them used gold embossing powder to emboss the design I randomly stamped on the frames to completely cover them.I then took a sponge and went over the frames with Ranger distress ink putting more on the outside and inside edges. I did one in red and one in green.I then put in the wallet size picture( trimming where  I needed to fit) and then put on the back. I then took the sponge with ink and went around the edge to finish it off.
 I hope you like the frames and get inspired to make some of your own. These can easily be tucked in with your Christmas card with out a lot of added weight.
  How are you coming with your Christmas projects?
Have a great day, take some time to play in the ink today!
