You can't use different frame sizes in the same frame (as in \framed). A
simple solution is


instead of using a bottomframe. Or maybe better

  after={\hrule width\hsize height.05em}]

You can adjust the vertical spacing by using

  after={\hbox{\raise 5pt\hbox{\vrule width\hsize height.05em}}}]

But the second solution maybe has some unwanted sideeffects (page
breaks,..). I've tried to use \hrule in combination with 'before=', but
this does not work here. Hope this helps.

Greetings, Peter
