Tutorial: Creating a Border for Apothecary Accents Framelits

Framelits Dies are metal, so you have to be very careful not to bend them.  They cut with precision, layer beautifully and are the hot ticket in the Stampin' Up!.  Framelits Dies  are easy to use with the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine and some have coordinating stamps that match.

I have a friend who's name is Libby and she created this wonderful tutorial about creating a border for the Apothecary Accent Framelits.   Enjoy her tutorial.
Scraps of card in your chosen colors
Big Shot
Framelits - Apothecary Accents
Adhesive - Snail & Dimensionals (to adhere to your project.
Cut 1 Framelit in your chosen color (this is the main piece)
Cut 2 Framelits in your 'border' color
Big Shot Sandwich - Big Shot main platform with all tabs closed; clear plate (make sure this is the plate you don't mind marking when cutting); card; Framelit cutting side facing down and clear plate
So, now you have 3 little frames.

Take 1 of your pieces and cut as shown above.

Take another piece (same color as the first) and cut as shown above

Adhere the pieces to the back of your main frame as shown above. I find it easier to adhere the end pieces first followed by the side pieces. However, you come up with your own method that works for you.

Now, this isn't perfect as you do get a double point at each point. However, I don't feel that detracts from the image you are trying to get. I've used the same white and pink as I used in the tutorial above, so you could see more clearly the finished effect.
Add dimensionals to the back and adhere to your project.

Didn't she make a great card?   I love this tutorial!   Thank you Libby for sharing this with me!
