Make It Monday #12: Line Frame 101

I have received many inquiries over the years about drawing line frames around card fronts.  Today's Make It Monday video covers just that!  I hope this inspires you to try the technique for yourself!

Here are some still shots of today's project.

If you are joining along this week, here are the details concerning the Make It Monday Challenge.

–A new Make It Monday Challenge & video will go up every Monday morning at 9am EST.

–Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge.  Your project must use at least one Papertrey product of some kind and a drawn frame.

–Post your project on your blog, in your gallery or on any other photo-hosting site (such as photobucket or flickr).

–Add your link to our —>InLinkz List<—

–You will have until 7am, Monday, May 2nd, to add your link to the list to be eligible to win.  And you can enter as many times as you like.

–We will be tweeting and posting on our Facebook page every night (between 5-9pm EST) highlighting a Featured Project.  These tweets/Facebook postings will just be a shout-out regarding projects that caught our eye.  The tweets/Facebook postings no longer have any special merit regarding the actual contest.

–One randomly selected winner will be chosen from ALL the entries on Monday, May 2nd, after 7am.  The winner will be posted here on this blog post, on Twitter and Facebook.  The randomly selected winner will get to select a FREE Papertrey stamp set of their choice!

 Good luck to everyone and we look forward to seeing your projects!


Judy asked as to why I drew this frame rather than utilize the Framed stamp set.  Not only did I want to showcase this technique because it can be used for any size or shape you need, but sometimes you may also want to change things up as far as where the sentiment opening goes, etc.  If someone is uncomfortable with drawing the frame, then yes, it would probably work out best to make accommodations for Framed and stick with that.  Just trying to provide options for more creativity.
