I recently created this layout and wanted to share the creative process for recreating the ‘peek a boo’ window effect which frames my photo.
MHC Products: Purple Vine, Pink Razzles, Purple Razzles Card Pack, Sarah (Pack), White Tweeny Weenies, Melon Petite Rose
Believe Patterned Papers – Lace & Frames (Cardstock)
The middle frame from the top row of the Believe Frames (cardstock) has been adapted:
First fussy cut the frame element– With scissors or craft knife, cut around the outer edges but do not remove the centre piece.
To create a window effect with a frame – Trim down the middle of the centre piece of the frame with a craft knife. With scissors or a craft knife cut along the top and bottom edges. Score along the left and right inside edges and fold the pieces back to create a window ‘shutter’effect.
Position and attach your photo in the middle.
I have another example of where I have done similarly – This was also the project recently taught at the Ladies of the Manor Retreat:
A slightly smaller frame fussy cut from the Believe cardstock was adapted:
