With 3D Foam Strips it’s ever so easy to adhere dimensional frames to a card. Wanna join me in making this framed birthday card? Let’s get started!

Making the Card Base

First, fold a piece of white cardstock in half to create a square card. Then adhere to a piece of patterned paper using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. This is all you need to create the base card.

Creating the Frame

For this card you need two die cuts. First die-cut and emboss a square shape from white paper. Then die-cut and aemboss a frame from gold cardstock.

To keep the two metal cutting dies in place I used some washi tape. Now use some 3D Foam Squares White Mix to adhere the white die-cut square onto the card base. Then adhere the frame over the white square and tuck one corner under the white die-cut square. To adhere the golden frame I used 3D Foam Strips.

I trimmed the 3D Foam Strips using scissors to fit the frame.

Finishing the Card

Adhere a sentiment onto the frame using a piece of 3D Foam Strips. Then adhere some mulberry flowers and leaves onto the card using Adhesive Dots Mini for adhering. And finally tuck some stamens under the leaves and adhere using the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

And voilá, your framed birthday card is ready.

I hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial and wish you happy crafting!

Thanks for stopping by!
