More Bordered Sentiments

Update (8/16/16):  I was really very tickled that my card was closed to be "In the Mailbox" over at Cards In Envy challenge blog.  This is a fun challenge for mailable cards, and I have really been enjoying it!  Thank you!



Update (8/10/16): I was so pleased that my card was chosen to be part of the TOP THREE at the ModSquad Challenge blog this week!  Thank you!


Hi everyone! I have had a busy week with many doctor visits with my kids and little to no cardmaking.  Luckily, everyone is well again, and hopefully we will be all back to normal.

When I saw that the ModSquad challenge was going to be Bordered Sentiments, and since I just did some cards with this technique last week, I decided to change the technique up a little bit.

(Click on photo for larger image.)

All I did was use my Tim Holtz ruler and paper piercer to add piercing lines inside the border. I think it is a fun addition to a CAS card!

Supplies: Gina K Made with Love and Whimsical Spring stamp sets, Memento Jet black inkpad and marker, ruler, piercing tool, alcohol markers, white gel pen.

I would love to participate in the following challenge:

  6. What a cute, cute card. Haven't seen it on an angle before. This is a one of my favourite techniques I've seen done; just have to get around to doing it myself. Thanks for the inspiration.

  11. Hi, I noticed that you used a stamp set from GKD. that qualifies you for two changes to win. I am putting you in as I caught it this time. Just add MSC in front of your name next time so you don't miss out. Instructions are on the blog.

  12. Oh, Heidi, what a gorgeous card, and I love the butterflies. And what a fabulous way to add the sentiment on an angle. Don't you just love that Tim Holtz ruler? Beautifully done, and I see it qualifies for two chances to win in the challenge! Hugs!
