International Flair:Picture Frames

When I got my first set of Imperial Gold dies I instantly fell in love with the debossing and embossing on these dies. When i saw the Gold Majesty Circles in person for the fist time I was pleasantly surprised at how big they were.  Immediately they reminded me of a picture frame and that was my inspiration for this project.
I cut and embossed some gold shimmer cardstock and layered it to four pieces of white chipboard (no circle cut out on the back) and created a small piece to be the easel.  I wanted this to be slim so that it was barely visible from the front.  Before I attached the back I cut the picture out with my spellbinders circles and a piece of transparency to protect the picture (slightly larger than the opening).  I think these would also make great magnets so that will be my next variation (great gift idea for Grandparents).

Supplies used:  Spellbinders Gold Majesty Circles, Spellbinders standard circles large and small, Core'dinations Pearlescent cardstock.
