I bought this great Dover Book/CD of Royalty Free Vector Images a while ago when I was looking for suitable designs to etch onto metal. (metalwork jewellery making is my other thing!)
I never really did use the designs in my metalwork but I’m happy to say it’s come in useful for my paper cut designs instead. My starting point for this weeks cut file was this image from the book:
After a bit of tracing, deleting, subtracting, welding, moving and swearing (….nah, just joking about the swearing!) this is the result.
It includes two Scroll frames sized 5×7 inches with two backing options. One backing has a larger internal offset than the other and they can be mixed and matched with the frames.
Use them as decorative frames for photos, panels on cards, frames for sentiments – whatever you can think of really 🙂
Here’s my test cuts: the back:
The Frames overlaid on the backs:
And here’s one variation in action on a slightly larger mat board.

Great looking frames,Pam & what a perfect way to coordinate more with the décor too. The book looks an ideal starting point for designing & to me, the welding, cutting, subtracting (& general ‘messing about’, LOL) with a design is the ‘fun’ bit!

Your thought about using these as frames on cards has got me thinking. Thanks for the suggestion and the share.
