I used the collage on this first card on a set of rose mini cards once before...for this one, I played with cropping it here and there into a square shape to fit inside the square Spellbinders doily die shape:

This second card uses a little Making Memories clear acrylic frame that has been in the drawer so long, I'm not even sure whether I purchased it or received it as a gift/rak/publication goodie box. The label says it's "self adhesive" but any adhesive that was once on the back had long-since dried up. That ended up working to my advantage, though (and is a good example of why it's sometimes a good thing not to purge embellishments just because they're "old!")
I took an "old" piece of vellum from Over the Moon Press/EK Success (can any of you remember Over the Moon Press papers? I used to love so many of their paper designs!), and stamped the sentiment using Ranger Archival Ink (the frame already had the black edge and the flower shape on it, so I stamped the sentiment to fit around those). Then I coated the back of the frame lightly with Glossy Accents, and pressed the stamped vellum piece to the back of the frame, and let it dry. I coated the outside edge of the clear frame with clear coarse glitter to add some texture and brightness.
