Teach me Tuesday Easter frame card

Hi everyone it's Kelly coming to you from the Mbtreasurista Design team Teach me Tuesday tutorial today of an Easter frame card that I made using a sizzix die.  I have not seen this technique done but if it has already I am sorry for repeating it but I finagled the idea around a bit until I got it perfectly the way I wanted it and I have the cards to show you in the beginning and end of the video.  I did have one fail but then after tweaking it a bit, came up with a really swift way to create a beautiful scallop frame around the entire card, trifold frame and to put it together for a nice Easter treat for my family! 

You will need:
Some sort of square or rectangle die
6 x 12 piece of cardstock/paper
3 pcs of cardstock for frames
lace for outside embellishment and flowers for garnish

Creating the Crafty Life's Spring Fever Blog Hop

Good morning everyone!!! Now if the calender didn't say it was spring then i would have no idea by looking outside as we are still getting snow, how crazy is that. So who else has "Spring Fever" i know i do, so ready for the warm weather, flowers and the sounds of birds :) So to get some of that Spring mojo flowing, Creating the Crafty Life is bringing you a spring inspired blog hop full of inspiration. 

So for my project i totally wanted to alter something. So off to Michaels i went and scoured for something that i hadn't done yet and what did i find but a wooden picket fence basket. It was slightly damaged so bonus i got it 75% off. I hope you love it as much as i do, it will be displayed all Spring Long :)
