Name Frames

My folks asked me to make some name frames for them to give as Christmas gifts. I have not made name frames for a couple of years and had been brainstorming what I wanted to do with them. Well, after the family being sick in October and my Mom's leukemia diagnosis in November I had not started them. Because of that I was able to use Vintage Vogue and Very Vintage. When I saw those in the preorder I was excited and knew exactly what I was going to use. So those along with the filigree in Friends 24-7 and the Symphony Wheel, I went to work. Although they are very similar, I tried to make each one different with a bit of color and placement of tags and such.
I used Soft Suede for the lettering with Timeless Type. Stamping was done with Soft Suede and Sahara Sand. Cardstock is Thoroughly Modern Designer Series Paper and Very Vanilla. Ribbon is the new Satin Ribbon and the brads are the vanilla jumbo brads. The Scallop Trim Border Punch was also used.

The bit of color here is Ruby Red.

The bit of color on this one is Always Artichoke.
The bit of color here is Bordering Blue.
Now I think I need to make one of these for my own house. What do you think?
