DCM - In the frame

This week's challenge over at Daring Cardmakers was to use a frame. While I was tidying all my stash last week I came across a pack of Kanban pearlescent die-cut frames that I bought at least 4 years ago and hadn't even opened so I decided to use those to make a Christmas card. However once I got started I couldn't stop and I ended up making quite a few!

Used: white card, Dovecraft Christmas paper, Studio G stamp, chalk ink, gingham ribbon, red pen and Kanban frame.

Used: DCWV card, DCWV paper from cardmaking kit, Studio G stamp, Prismacolor pencils, gingham ribbon, white pen and Kanban frame.

After taking the photo of this one I modified the card slightly by adding 4 white eyelets (one in each corner of the patterned paper). I realy must buy a silent setter so I can use eyelets in the evening when the kids are in bed!

Used: red card, green paper, DCWV patterned paper, Studio G stamp, Prismacolor pencils, Doodlebug ric-rac, Creative Imaginations rub-on and a Kanban frame.

Used: DCWV cardstock, Dovecraft patterned paper, Studio G stamp, chalk ink, snowflake brad, red ribbon and a Kanban frame.

Like before I added eyelets to this card too.

I did make a few more but realised I haven't taken photos of those. Will post tomorrow if I remember!
