How to make a Faux Picture Frame

Hi all, Melyssa here and I have a card to show you that I started a little while ago but never got around to finishing it. I started by making a Faux picture frame and hanging onto the front of a card.  Then I printed, coloured and framed the image.  Add some embellies and it's done!

Here's how to make a faux picture frame.
1. Cut a square from "wood" pattern paper or wood grain stamped paper
2. Next cut a smaller square out of the center to make a frame.
3. Fold the corners to create a diagnol crease and ink edges
4. Add 3D foam squares to raise the frame
5. Hang it with some twine and a small brad (nail)

Here's my card.
