Borders and Corners Square #1

As you can see from the header on my blog, I love orange and blue. Supplies Used: Stamps: Papertreyink's Borders and Corners Square, Little Lady, and Faux Ribbon. Cardstock: Shimmery White; Stampin Up Bashful Blue; Ink: Stampin Up Bashful Blue, Always Artichoke, and Pumpkin; SU Artichoke marker; Embelllishments: SU white wide organdy ribbon; pumpkin eyelet; word window punch and corner rounder punch. Tools and Other items: Japanese Screw Punch, Mono Multi Adhesive, paper cutter, pearl accent from Ellen Hutson. Just so you know, I made the background with stamps -- used the rounded square from Borders and Corners Square at an angle and repeatedly stamped. The blue and pumpkin "ribbon" is faux. Also, this has a layer -- the top of the card is adhered to another shimmery white card. I lined them up before cutting, adhering and punching the rounded corners.

  2. WOW! That background looks like printed paper. I was just wondering how she got her image to match her paper so perfectly when I decided to read the directions.
    Great card!

  16. Hi Joan,

    I saw your card on Nichole's blog with an honorable mention and had to agree how AWESOME it is! I love how you created a designer paper of your own and mirrored the rounded square edges on the card base itself! Fantastic job!

    Thanks for sharing!
