You'll need to choose a frame with not a lot of activity. I don't have Elegant Edges, but here's a sample I made with Lacy Labels. The design is very simple. You'll need to be able to capture the edges of the frame within rectangles/squares that you will build around it. Weld everything together. Dont' place a square over your EE frame, only along the edges and you'll need to overlap the edges a little.

In my sample, I put the frame where I wanted it to appear on the card. Then, I took the square from George and Basic shapes and started building around the card to form a rectangle card shape. Everything is welded together. The rectangles overlap the frame from LL a small amount.

Do some experimenting with practice paper. You can see from my sample that I didn't weed out the small pieces very well. This would make a pretty card, and if I was going to make one, I would use my practice paper to make adjustments until it was the size I wanted, and I was able to weed out the smaller parts (can't find my pick....).

Have fun, and post what you come up with.


Meant to add that you don't need George and Basic shapes, you can use the free CCR basic shapes cart. It should show up under your carts in CCR.
