Hola amigas! I hope your week is off to a great start. I have a really fun card to share with you today!
Today, I’m featuring Belinda’s Borders from Lawn Fawn. I usually try to use as many of the stamps in the set as possible on the card, but today I focused on just one stamp – those awesome scallops.
Here’s a look at the card. It’s a little funky, but this kind of funky is right up my alley. :)
I used the scalloped border to stamp repeatedly over some Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. These borders are SUPER easy to line up because of their extra-wide bases. It helps to create even spacing and keep the borders straight. I love it! I colored in the scallops with some of my favorite copic marker colors and colored the background in with a T4 Toner Grey Marker. I like how that really makes the white pop!
Then, I used this awesome label die and a sentiment from Sophie’s Sentiments to finish everything off. The pearls were colored with the exact same copic markers that I used to color the card. I love that I can personalize my accents to make an exact color match when I use Copics.
I hope you enjoyed the card for today! I can’t wait to play with this set more; next on my list of projects is to do a fun plaid background with those stitching lines. That would be so cute!
Jake and I had a really fun, relaxing day today by going to the movies (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter… it was just meh), going for a dip in Lake Calhoun right in the middle of the city and finishing up our day out with a big pizza. Yum! I’m wiped out from the sun, so I’m taking tonight easy and getting ready to get a lot done the rest of this week. Thanks, Minnesota, for the gorgeous day! I love wonderful summery days.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. See you again soon!
