Monster Bash Halloween Floating Frame Card - September Card Club

Hello everyone!  I have a set of fun cards to share with you today.  By now you've probably seen cards online using this unique floating frame technique.  Well, it had been on my "things-to-try" list for a long time and finally I tried it!!! I absolutely had so much fun creating my cards.  I wanted to share this technique with my monthly card club members and thought the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper would be perfect!  Here they are!

Isn't this so cute?  Just in case if you don't know...using the Floating Frame technique you can actually make 2 cards.  Here is my first one using the outer frame die-cut.  I chose Basic Black card stock for my card base for my first card.  There is not so much else to finish besides making your floating frame.  To finish my card I die cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie Card Stock with one of the Ornate Frames Dies and stamped a sentiment from the Spooktacular Bash Stamp Set.  These two products are available as a bundle (SAVE 10%).  The Monster Bash Enamel Shapes are "must-have" in my opinion!!!

Here is my second card.  I added a black outer frame to the inner frame die-cut to embellish my card. The sentiment and die cut are from the same bundle (Spooktacular Bash Bundle).  I also added a spider die-cut from the Wicked Die Set.

These cards are my sample cards for the club workshops.  I used two different die-cuts from the Stitched Rectangles Die Set in order to make the class flow better.  Now you can see the difference - the one on the right has more black space compared to the card on the left.

Now this picture of my second cards shows you two different sizes for the outer frame.  It depends which look you prefer.
