Tips & Techniques Tuesday - May 28, 2019 - Floating Frame Card

Today I want to show you all about making a floating frame.  I love doing this.  You can use anything to make it.  Stamp and die cut. Stamp and Punch, Stamp and fussy cut, Already cut die cuts, Designer Series Paper and so much more.  It is a fun technique and makes beautiful cards.
 I will show you how to put the cards together on There's A Card Thursday.  Here are a few examples.

So let's see how to do this great technique.  For this I used Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper. Yes I actually fussy cut 4 pages of butterflies.

Here are the supplies I used in this card.

Product List

Plus Press'n Seal.

Supplies: Stamp Set - Flowering Desert [148700]; Ink - Tuxedo Black Memento [132708]; Card Stock - Whisper White 8 ½ x 5 ½  [100730], Basic Black 5 ½ x 4 ¼  [121045], Coastal Cabana 8 ½ x 5 ½  [131297]; Designer Series Paper - Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper [149622]; Accessories - Stampin' Dimensionals [104430], Mini Stampin' Dimensionals [144108], Big Shot [143263], Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies [145372], Press’n Seal.


  1. Cut out the items you would like to use for the frame.  I cut out a few sheets of the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  You can die cut or use anything that you can to fill a 5 ½ x 4 ¼ piece of card stock.
  2. Now arrange them on the 5 ½ x 4 ¼ piece of cardstock.  DO NOT ATTACH
  3. Gently Dust the Press’n Seal or the cut outs with an embossing buddy.
  4. Gently lay the Press’n Seal over the cut outs and rub to make it stick.
  5. Lift up the press and seal and remove the base card stock.
  6. Attach your chosen Die Cut to the Press’n Seal with a piece or two of Washi tape and run through the big shot.  You may have to shim it to make sure it cuts out.
  7. Remove the inside and outside cuts.
  8. Turn each over and put Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals on the back.  I do not remove the die as it then provides rigidity for laying it on the card base.
