Four Frames Four Ways

I love it when Stampin' Up! designs a punch for a stamp set. Four Frames (128589) and the Decorative Label punch (120907) are made for each other.

I decided to design a card for each of the stamps in this set using the same layout.

Nautical Frame
The Open Sea (128454) set and World Map (130342) background with a nautical colour scheme of Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Midnight Muse work well together for a masculine card.
Rose Frame
Use a blender pen and Primrose Petals with Blushing Bride inks for the roses and Always Artichoke with Pear Pizzazz for the leaves. The En Francais (128562) background adds to the feminine appeal on this card.
Natural Frame
The Square Lattice (119976) embossing folder texture and the Woodgrain (128763) background lend a natural feel to the colour combination of Soft Sky, Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip. I used sponge daubers to colour the bird and the edges of the label.

Baby Frame
The polka dot frame is perfect for a baby card. Ink the Baby Tees (118621) jumbo wheel with Chocolate Chip and use Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz markers to colour the onesies.
