How to make a frame with your Spellbinders Nestabilities

We celebrated Women's day by enjoying a morning at
Irene Country Lodge, making a mini album with paper from
Webster's Paper and having a wonderful brunch before returning home.
I decided to make these cards from the same paper and make
 them not to difficult.
  Use any of the 6x6" Webster's paper for these cards and
the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Nine.

Even if you are a beginner, you can try this.
Cut your cream card stock 6"x12", score and fold.
Measure and cut the coloured card stock just smaller than the cream one.

Take your pattered paper and measure in the same way.
Cut and put together with double sided tape.

I used my Cuttlebug to cut the frames for the cards.
The trick is to stick down some double sided tape onto your
C plate and position the two frames (no: 3&4) inside one another, 
precisely with even spaces around them.
(If any tape is exposed to the paper, get rid of the tackiness by touching
the tape until it is safe to put your paper down.)
Put your paper, face down onto the die, then the B plate on top, and cut.
Then again, cut one no: 3 and one no: 4 label.
* Never lift your paper straight off the plate, rather give
it a twist to remove it safely from the plate and the tape.

The larger label will be used as the basis. The smaller one can be
stamped with a sentiment and placed in the centre. Take the
frame and put some foam squares at the back, adhere
to the basis and there you go!

Thanks for visiting.
