S&S Sketch #53, with tutorial

Today's card is for the Stars & Stamps challenge for Sketch #53.

I've had several requests for more info on how I make the punched corner frames.  You can see more of them in this post.  For this reason, I have taken some photos while making this card.
I like the Corner Adorner punches for this because of the frame that makes placement easy.  Just fit the corners into the punch, punch and rotate to punch all corners.  They will be evenly spaced for an insert.
Measure the opening for insert placement.

 Measure the space between the punches, in both directions.  Cut your insert to this size or slightly small to make insertion easier.

The back side is not too attractive, so this is best used as a layer.  If you punch these corners in the base card, you will probably want to line the card to cover the back.

Attach the framed image to the prepared base card.  This image is from a clear $1 set of stamps.


  1. Pretty card, Velda! Thanks for showing us how to make that frame. Thanks for playing along in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  2. Thank You for the tutorial. I've always admired those edges.
