Sneak Peek Day 4: Free with Three "Framed Greetings"

Hello! Welcome back to our final sneak preview before the party starts tonight! This morning we are sharing this month's Free with Three set "Framed Greetings", what card wouldn't look better with this gorgeous label on it?
I used Basic Grey Marjolaine for my background and took my colors from it, something I really like about this label is the thick and thin stripes, they give you space to add your own colors in between if you wish to match your patterned papers, isn't that a fun way to add color? But of course the stripes will looks beautiful stamped in one color, too... :)
TIP: If you want to add a fancy mat behind the label but don't have a pendant die, try making one from two Fancy Tags die cuts, this black print is also Marjolaine. Cardstock is Pure Luxury White and Black Onyx, 5/8" stitched ribbon and adhesive pearls to embellish.

Please go see more ideas for these "Framed Greetings" from our talented design team!
