The next "treasure" chest I am making for my DH, come back to see all the pics I select (sorry I'm so behind! lol!) it holds a a mini accordion which will have pictures of our family. The border labels from this set are perfect for framing up your pics, as well as stamping ON your pics to give a custom frame which will fit on your ready made mat! The top uses a BOLD stamp, again another of my favorites. See how it has that negative border? Looks so sharp! (and has lots of uses beyond what I share tonight)!!
To give it some texture here I kissed the bold stamp onto my SU! Paisley(which was inked in Creamy Caramel Classic),
and added a flourish from Baroque Motifs in Chocolate Chip, also rolling the edge in this same ink , before huffing and stamping. Isn't that pattern gorgeous? I added the "Tiny Treasure" in Chocolate Chip last. ( I accidentally got a little smudge from my finger on it, so I used my SU! "boo boo stamp" from Itty Bitty Backgrounds to speckle it, which gave it an old worn look, very charming. thank goodness! love that boo boo stamp!)
Last I took an 11 inch long piece of CS, stamped my border all the way down and scored between the frames. I'll trim up the photos in the same shape once I pick them out, and may do some journaling on every other label.
To round the edges, fold up and insert two layers into your corner rounder(SU!'s corner rounder goes through both layers with ease, others, I can't say for sure...)
