Border Signs Card

project - border signs card

Materials needed:
2 prefolded glossy cards and pink granite recycled card stock
Micro hands confetti
Black and red Vivid! or Ancient Page dye-based inkpads
Primary Colorbox pigment inkpad
Clear embossing powder
Stamps:1807-A (ily hands & hearts border), 2108-B (cool guy)("Cool guy" is ©2001 Dan McClintock)

This card was created using a prefolded 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" glossy card and a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of glossy card stock (you can cut a prefolded card in half).
On the back of the single piece of card stock, with a ruler, draw a centered 2 3/4" x 4" window in pencil. Cut out the window with a metal ruler and sharp X-acto knife (this piece of card stock can be saved for another use).The thickness of the resulting border should be about 1 1/2".
On the border you just made, stamp the "ily hands & hearts border" design several times, lining up the images (you might find a stamp positioner helpful for this). Carefully use the corner of the red inkpad to color in one heart on the stamp, then carefully dab the black inkpad on the rest of the image (you can also use black & red water-based markers for this). Stamp this, then use the black inkpad only for the rest of the frame stamping. Cut out the corners in a curved pattern, using small sharp scissors. Stick this frame you just made onto the prefolded card with foam tape.
Stamp the "cool guy" onto the pink granite recycled card stock with the Colorbox© primary pigment inkpad; sprinkle with clear embossing powder and emboss using a heat tool. Cut around the image and stick onto the prefolded card with foam tape.
Glue pink & cyan "Micro Hands" confetti around the "cool guy" with a glue stick.
You can use this simple idea of a framed card with other images, other colors of card stock, etc.
