ME Stamp Highlight: Modern Borders

February 18, 2013

Happy Monday, everyone!!  Did you have a good Sunday?  I said goodbye to Josh for the week as he is traveling for business, and then had a pretty quiet morning.  I went to Oula at 2pm, had some lunch afterwards, and then got showered and ready for church.  Other than that, the day wasn't too eventful!!

Today we are highlighting the new Mama Elephant stamp set called "Modern Borders".  I got my rainbow on for this card, and inked up the scalloped border in shades of ROYGBIV.....ha!!  I combined the rainbow border with a sentiment from "Smitten", and I think they worked together perfectly!  Check it out!
1. Make A2 card from white orange peel cardstock.
2. Ink the scalloped border with rainbow shades of ink, then stamp to the card front.
3. Wrap twine around the top of the stamped border.
4. Tie a double bow from matching twine, attach a button to the center and adhere to the card.
5. Add rainbow colored jewels below the stamped border.
6. Stamp the sentiment below the jewels to finish.
