Video: CAS Frame and Borders

Hello!  Hope you had a terrific weekend!  In today's video, I show you how to add simple accents to the stamped Fabulous Frame with my A Year of Borders set . We'll do some masking and add some drop shadows with a marker as well. This clean and simple design could work for any occasion or season when you switch out the borders and colors. Please enjoy!
