Fun With Fitted Frames

 Have you seen the new Els van de Burgt Fitted and Stitched Frames?  These two die  sets are spaced to work together with a spacing of 1/4" for easy layering.  You can use these dies as a solid frame or use them to create cut open frames.   I hope you will go to this LINK to watch Els YouTube video showing exactly how they work.  I am sure these are dies you will want to add to your collection.

 Stitched Squares

Fitted Squares
I used the largest Stitched Square on top of a a red backing.  On top I used the largest Fitted Square die and embossed it with the Lots of Dots Embossing folder.  It was attached with dimensional tape.  Next I die cut the third largest Stitched Square for a backing for the small squares. For the small squares I used a combination of the small squares in both the Fitted and Stitched Square die sets.  The two smallest squares were glue together and attached at a diagonal using dimensional tape. 

The roses were created using Susan's Garden Notes Rose 2 dies.  This die set comes with rose leaves, but I wanted a little larger leaf, so I used the triple leaf die from Susan's Garden Notes Rose 1 die set.

On the bottom of the card, I used two of the El van de Burgt Stitched Rectangles and one Fitted Rectangle.  A third small square with rose was attached to the left side, using dimensional tape.  The heart was die cut using one of the dies in the A Way With Words Calligraphic Elements 1 die set.

 On the inside of the card, I used Els largest Stitched Square die.  This is a 6x6 inch card, and this die fits perfect for a pretty frame on the inside of the card.  The beautiful sentiment is the A Way With Words - Love die.  The little hearts were die cut using the little die in the Joset Designs - Hot Air Balloons die set. 

There are so many combinations you can come up with the Els van de Burgt Fitted and Stitched dies.  Have fun creating!

Hi Selma. Since you make so many 6x6 cards, I'm curious what kind of cardstock you use for your card bases. Do you use 12x12 CS cut in half? I can find lots of great 8-1/2x11 CS in nice heavy weights for good card bases, but I've never seen any 12x12 CS that was heavy enough to suit me for card bases. I just bought the Spellbinders 6x6 Matting Basics A and B and would like to start making some 6x6 cards and all I can think to do is piece the card base. That's not the worst thing if it's done neatly, but I'd prefer just having paper the right size to begin with.

Sure hope you might address this in a future post.

Beautiful card! I always love a red and white color scheme even if it's not for a Valentine.
