Bambi frame gift

  • Disney bambi metal die
  • Nit wit & LOTV- always & forever paper pad
  • My favourite things- stitch rectangle scallop edge frames
  • Lawn fawn- finley’s ABC’s dies
  • Copic friendly cardstock
  • Copic markers- E30,31,34,35,37,39,57,59. W8,10. R000,81,83.
  • Grey 8” square frame (mine was from wilko)
To make this frame gift, I selected two pieces of coordinating paper. I chose one 8x8 piece for the background and the other to die cut from for embellishments. I diecut the frame and letters to spell the name from the patterned paper. I also diecut my bambi image from white card and added tape to the back, whilst all the pieces where still in the metal die, to hold the sections together. I then removed the bambi from the die and added back in any pieces that had fallen out. I used copic markers to colour the image, using a picture online as reference. 
I decided on the best layout and glued all of the pieces onto the background paper. I used a craft knife to remove any paper showing through the die-cut frame to create an aperture for a photo to sit behind.
I slotted this finished piece into the frame and added a sheet of white card behind, to make it look nice for gifting. I prefer to leave it for the child’s parents to decide which picture they want to display rather than selecting one you like.
