Technique Hop – “Striped Borders”

Welcome to the Technique Blog Hop!  This month is all about striped borders!  Today you should have arrived here from Alyson’s blog.  If not, and you started here, that’s perfect too!  It’s a circle, and you will get back to Alyson’s blog, I promise!  If you get lost along the way, you can find the whole list on Melissa’s blog.

Now . . . . I kinda shied away from the theme . . . well, more took it in a really artistic direction. . . . or something like that!  LOL!!

So, the Perfect Match Stamp set has a couple of stamps that can be used as a border, including this XOXOXO stamp.  As I inked it up, to create a nice straight line down the left side, my brain screamed at me (quite literally, I might add) to do a messy side.  So, there are first, second, third, and even fourth generation stamping images here!  Now, you won’t generally find me doing messy stuff like this.  (usually my brain fights against it, really really hard!)  But it was just the ‘right thing’ to do!  LOL!

I even repeated the look on the inside.  I used a thin strip of black cardstock to give it a nice finished look, and to give it a bit of definition.

I used a few different die sets for this card, because they are so easy and handy!  I used the Stitched Simple Brackets as well as the {retired} stitched circle and basic circle thin cuts.  The tiny little hearts are from the layout that I did on my FB live on Thursday!  So cute!

Thanks so much for stopping by on the hop!  I hope you like my little card!  Next, you are off to Haley’s blog!  Make sure to leave everyone a little love along the hop!
