Love Is the Tie that Binds

      MAKE IT MONDAY #217
      Creating Your Own Custom Borders

Laurie showed us today on the Capture the Moment blog how to use our stamps and dies to make a custom border. I had already assembled the quilt block so tricked it out with a sunburst stamped die border. Added a bit of sparkle to the sunburst with a clear Wink of Stella pen. I have not used a border in a long time. Her second card on the video reminded me to quit hoarding my wood paper. Like Laurie I mounted my wood panel on fun foam to give it a solid base and lift it off the A2 card.  

Hope you'll drop by the blog to check out Laurie's video and the other cards.  Click on the link to  capture the moment
