Monday will be the 12th anniversary of my father's passing and I wanted to create a Memory Frame using a new die set from Spellbinders Paper Arts™. No matter how many years pass, I still miss him so very much! LYTAM Daddy!

Surprisingly, this worked up pretty quickly. I cut and embossed the Antique Frame from Spellbinders™ Shapeabilities® Antique Frame and Accents out of Royal & Langnickel Engraving Art Black/Copper Foil sheets using the Grand Calibur®. With an emery board, I removed the black coating on the frame's embossed areas to showcase the copper foil underneath. I inserted the photo of my father when he was in the navy, and added Creative Impressions Cherished Memories Twill ribbon and some antique buttons. A knotted ribbon, twine in the buttons and ivory pearls finished it off.
I layered my frame with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam dots to ivory cardstock and fussy cut around the frame to give it a matted look. I shaded the edge of the ivory frame with Copic Marker E53. With more foam dots, I added this piece to a Labels Seventeen panel I had cut from the Black/Copper Foil and had sanded.
The back of my frame uses the tag from the Antique Frame set and I also cut and embossed it with the black/copper foil then sanded it. I mounted it to ivory cardstock, cut around it to mat it, then adhered the top portion of the tag to the back of my frame for the frame stand.
