Floating Frame Christmas Card – Video

Have you seen the floating frame Christmas card technique that’s been so popular recently?

You’ll be using this card tutorial year round….just change the sentiments for whatever occasion you need a greeting card for!

Floating Frame Christmas Card – Details

Like you, I love to try new techniques. The floating frame card got my attention a few months ago and uses Press N’ Seal to hold the images in place. In all honesty, I struggled. Every time I tried to secure my image using the Press N’ Seal, they would rip while removing the plastic wrap. I tried again and again, each time applying less pressure. Although the tearing improved, there were still small areas where the color would lift. I even attempted using designer paper. Same results so I benched the idea. I can’t in good conscious teach a project that I myself can’t master.

I recently revisited this technique. And guess what? I found an easier way – and it works flawlessly!


Instead of Press N’ Seal, I used Post-It-Note flags. I purchased mine on Amazon but you can find them at any big box or office supply store. You’ll get a good look at them in today’s video. I have used these for several years to hold my dies to the cutting mats when die cutting. They work famously and a small investment for die cutting sanity.


The best part of the floating frame technique is that it’s a 2 for 1 project. The die cut opening for the frame leaves you a solid negative to be used on a second card. The die cut frame leaves the images only within the perimeter of the frame but the negative provides the images towards the center.
