Ok I feel so dumb, it has been a year since I've done greeting cards, I created a bunch of cards but cannot figure out how to fit the picture into the frame? Like the middle section, instead of sizing the actual picture to the size of the frame I just want to put the picture into the frame and move it around within the frame until I get the look I want...can anyone steer me in the right direction on how to do this? I did it on tons of cards last year but have completely forgot how

Does it use clipping masks?

Not sure what program you use, but this is what I do in PSE.... put the image above the shape box and put your cursor in between them and hold alt and click (it will show two circles when you click and the image layer will move to the right, so they're grouped together. Then free transform to fit. (If that doesn't work, maybe google clipping mask)

I place the picture over the space, Press Ctrl +T to Free Transform it (holding the shift key to keep the perspective) and then once you have it the size it needs to be I right click on the layer (in the layer menu on the right) and CREATE CLIPPING MASK.

Is that what you mean?
