Congratulations Border Card

Happy Hello Ink Blot Shop friends, Annette Allen here with you today and I am sharing a card that I created using:

Simple Sayings Stamp Set
Decorative Borders Stamp Set
Painted Sunset Envelopes

It is always a good thing to have a congratulations card in your collection. With all the fun borders and backgrounds that Ink Blot Shop offers you can go wild with designs. I love the borders stamp sets because you really can use them on any type of card occasion.
I started with cutting my card base on kraft cardstock. I always fold my cards using a bone folder so I get a clean straight fold. This card is measured at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

I started with stamping this fun border from the Decorative Borders stamp set. I used my Misti to stamp with. This helps me to keep my borders straight. I tend to stamp crooked if I free hand it. The Misti is my friend when cardmaking.

I stamped the border 4 times. I started with the center and finished with the top and bottom. I did not line them up as I am not a line up type of crafter. Of course I need to add a little color, so I inked the centers with Copic Sketch markers (YG23, YG21, BG34, BG32, V22 and V20.
Finishing up with stamping these two sentiments from the Simple Sayings stamp set. I also thought that I needed some bling on the card so I added some pretty pearls by adhering them using Bearly Arts Precision glue.

A simple congratulations card that for sure will bring a smile, paired up with a colorful Ink Blot Shop Painted Sunset Envelope.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a colorful day!

Happy Crafting,
Annette Allen
