I loved this little diamond border stamp from Hero Arts when I bought about EIGHT years ago. And now I've finally made a card with it that I love.
How-To Tips: Dress up a border or background stamp with half pearls or rhinestones at intersections of shapes. On this card, the brown pearls add dimension and interest that are hard to see in the photo. I used a stamp positioner for the sentiment, and positioned the descenders for the letter y between diamonds so the sentiment and border would be related.
Rules for OLW17
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of cardstock folded in half.
2. Use a border stamp (or, if you don't have a border stamp, either create one by repeating a small stamp or consider this an excuse to go buy one!) Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum.
3. Please share your creation by posting your card online and then using the InLinkz button in the sidebar of Simplicity to link to it.
4. Most important of all...HAVE FUN!
The cards for OLW16 are awesome...and I will have time to comment on all of them today!
