I made this frame last night using an image I scanned from a bought Christmas card I received last year. I go through the previous year’s cards and scan some of them, before recycling. The image is 600 x 700 pixels. Here’s how I did it. Add border 1 pixel in black. Add border 6 pixels use a colour not in image, activate the magic wand, click in frame, flood fill with gold fill pattern. select none. add border 1 pixel in black. add border 20 pixels, choose a colour of choice I used #d22402. Click with magic wand in the frame, effects , textures, mosaic. effects inner bevel. Add border 1 pixel black. add border 12 pixels use a colour not in image, magic wand, flood fill with gold fill. select none. Add borders 1 pixel black, add border 25 pixels colour #d22402, magic wand, select, textures, mosaic, inner bevel. Add border 1 pixel black, select none. add border 6 pixels, flood fill with gold fill. Selections modify contract, by about 75 pixels, to the edge of the image. On a new layer Effects, 3D effects, cutout about 5 pixels, repeat on a new layer about -5. Some settings may vary depending on the size of image.
