Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #55


The Challange on Papertrey Ink's blog this week is to take a small stamp or die frame and make it larger. In the video, Dawn McVey takes a small frame stamp and stamps it beside the other to make it appear larger. I really don't have a stamp frame so I chose to enlarge a DOOR frame...like this:

This beautiful door frame is from the Papertrey Ink stamp collection called Door to Door. I really like it because of all the detail and the way you can color it to make it look like a door surrounded by stained glass...or if you stamp it twice, a window or frame.

While making this I thought it would be really fun for a bride and all her friends to make a bunch of these for her "Save The Date" announcements. Those who were lucky enough to receive one, could hang them up to remember that special date to come.

The bride could gather all her bridesmaids. Each friend would be given a crafting task...have an assembly line, and the cards would be done in no time!

oH MY GOODNESSES! I just love the fact that this looks so Frank Lloyd Wright! I would never have thought to color the "door" that way! THANKS for some great inspiration.
