Playing with Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday Challenge again this week, and the challenge this time is to make a die cut border without using border dies.
I played around with several of my stamp and die sets, and finally came up with something that worked--
I made this--
I stamped the flowers onto the shapes, and used markers to shade and highlight them. That middle leaf is really bad. I did coat everything with some clear Wink of Stella, but that doesn't help here because it doesn't photograph. Normally, I would just paste something over it, but as the sentiment is stamped right through it, I am sorta stuck with it. Oh, well. I am going to go with, the old, "it's a handmade card, they're gonna love it anyway" idea, and just ignore that leaf.
The sentiment is from the Movers and Shakers stamp set. Lots of fun pieces to play with and combine here. It looks so great layering them over the flowers. And that leaf. (That LEAF! But, I'm ignoring that...)
The inside is also the right side of the card. For that I used a piece of Crate Paper paper, and just went with it on the simple.
Here's just a look at the opened card--
The left side of the card is some washi tape and a bit of satin ribbon. A few clear sequins are the final touch. I like layering them just slightly over the text. Fun, right?
So, there it is. A leaf, with a nice card around it. (But, I'm ignoring that....)
Thanks for stopping by!
