Beautiful Borders - Again!

One more card using Stampin’ Up!’s Beautiful Borders set, and then I’m done with it for a while!

For this card, I started with a piece of cardstock from a Sizzix pad. It’s kind of purply/magenta-ish with a splotchy look. (Doesn’t sound very pretty, does it? LOL!) I stamped the leafy border on it in Versafine Onyx Black and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I mounted it on black, leaving a fairly large border on both sides and no border on the top and bottom. For the sentiment layer, I started with black and did the lacy border with a Martha Stewart punch. I used Stampin’ Up!’s Marvelous Magenta for the next layer, and stamped the sentiment (from Stampendous) with Versafine black ink. I added the black strips that I had left over after trimming down the black layer, and also the three black brads. That’s about it!

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
