Interlocking Frame Card

I have seen several interlocking frame cards but I thought I'd try one with more than just the outside and inside frame pieces.  It starts out looking like a regular gate fold card.

I am entering the Divas By Design Challenge #29 - Anything Goes [Whoops - guess I didn't get it in time for this challenge!) and Just Keep on Creating Challenge - #1 - Anything Goes.

Then start to open the card...

Now it starts to get interesting...

I have the outside frame, the next size frame, and then the center piece was cut into three pieces each one alternating in direction.  The frame pieces are from the new Sizzix Framelits (this one is from Stampin' Up).

 Here is the open card:

The designer paper I used is from Letters to Santa and the In-Color stack (it is a double layer to make the layers firmer), the Stamped sentiment is from Tagtastic, the swirls (on the back of middle tri-cut piece and the inside of the card) are from Priceless (retired), and the embossing on the front is made using the Sizzix Elegant Bouquet Embossing folder - all from Stampin' Up.

If you have done an interlocking frame card leave me a comment with a link - I'd love to see what you have made!


  1. That is a super cool card, Love the colours would make a great Mothers Day card.

  2. hi,

    this card is really awesome and I love what the final result was, all your hard work was certainly worth it. I love all the lovely colours you have used as well and the simple sentiment is just perfect on this card.

    Thanks so much for entering your card at Anything goes,Just keep on creating. Thanks so much for uploading my badge as well and I hope you will continue to play along :)
