Stamps and frame dies are a really fun and eye-catching combination as they provide a great focus to your stamped images. Some frame dies are sized to cover up your entire card front, whilst others are handy smaller frames, but all will give you endless possibilities for your card designs. Starting a greeting with a frame die gives you instant inspiration as you stamp and colour your images to fit.
