OLW 140 BordersPosted: May 15, 2013 Filed under: CAS, Love is in the Air, OLW, Penny Black 16 Comments
This week’s One Layer Wednesday challenge is all about making or stamping a border on your one layer card. You can use stamps designed for creating a border or you can create a border with any stamps as I did for these two cards. I masked both cards with a post-it note and then stamped and sponged below the mask so the stamping became a border pattern. On the card above I embossed a few flowers in white first, stamped some more in red then sponged over all the flowers with yellow, orange and red. On the card below I just stamped the delicate poppy stamp three times and sponged a tiny bit to define the edge of the border. For this challenge I want the border to be the main event on the card. Border and sentiment that’s it, no more!
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers of card stock allowed!
2. Make a card with a border as the image; you can add a sentiment but please remember to keep embellishments to a minimum.
3. Upload your card somewhere online and link it using the InLinkz button on the bottom of this post. If you link to your blog, please make sure the link goes to the individual post, not to your blog’s home page.
4.HAVE FUN! That’s really what it’s all about.
Stamps: Love is in the Air, Poppies, Wishes, Foliage Fancy (PB)
Inks: Memento Dandelion, Cantaloupe, Lady Bug & Versamark & Versafine Habanero, Versafine Majestic Blue(Tsukineko)
Also: Clear embossing powder

Another great idea for my “clever and beautiful ideas” folder. You’re just so talented!
What a fabulous way to make these beautiful cards. Thnx for the wonderful ideas. TFS
Cards with so much white space have to be created with such precision (and clean fingers!) and you have accomplished it perfectly, Heather! I really like the first border, with the rounded corners to match the card edge. The second card is a classic beauty.
These cards are really fabulous. Now, you’ve got me thinking about borders.
