Love Bug Paper Frame Card

Card #70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75

Have you guys ever made a card with a Paper Frame? They are so fun and not nearly as complicated as you may think... in fact, they are pretty easy.  I made half a dozen of these cute little Love Bug cards yesterday afternoon. (Can you tell I'm trying to re-stock my card stash?)

All solid papers from various Recollections paper packs.
Heart mat cut @ 4" x 5 1/4" using Recollections "All Girl" stack.
Frame mat from same pack cut @ 2 3/4" square.
Cricut cartridge SIMPLY CHARMED page 31
LoveBug2 cut @ 2 1/2"
Phrase cut @ 1" with Shadow Feature

How to Make a Paper Frame:
Start with 4" square double-sided cardstock
Using your Martha Stewart Scoring Board with Diagonal Scoring Tool:
Score at 1" and 1 1/2" and all 4 sides.
Fold 1" score lines in all the way around.
Fold 1 1/2" score lines out all the way around.
For complete instructions refer HERE to Split Coast Stampers.
