Technique Tuesday - Stamped Frame

Welcome to Technique Tuesday!  Today I'd like to share with you a very simple masking technique that will quickly create a beautiful frame for your favorite images.
I'm using it for Christmas cards, but by changing the stamps you select, you can use this method for any holiday or occasion.
This is what I gathered together:

 white cardstock cut to slightly smaller than your card front, repositionable adhesive, oval cut from scrap paper, rubber stamps of holly, pine needles, etc., various shades of green ink, red stickles or other glitter glue


 Apply a dot of the repositionable adhesive to the center of the  white cardstock


 Place the oval on the adhesive


 Stamp around the oval mask, overlapping, using the different
stamps and green inks




 Remove the mask


Finish the frame with some dots of red stickles to form berries.
You can also use a decorative corner punch as I did.

Cut your favorite images into ovals (slightly smaller than the frame oval) and adhere them to the center.  Mount your frame on the front
of a red card blank.  Here are some samples:
