It's Tuesday - time for Mark's Finest Papers
Use a Fancy Border
This great image and sentiment are from MFP's Sand Dollar Mini 2012 .
And here is the sketch:
Navy blue card stock was stamped with embossing ink and heat embossed with Recollections Aged Silver Chunky Embossing Powder, the sentiment was cut out and applied with foam tape to a piece of black card stock cut to 2 3/4" square. The same Darice gems were attached to 2 of the corners.
A 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" white cardstock base was layered with a border cut with a
Friskar's Decorative Punch and
laced with Gold metallic ribbon and a bow (from my stash).
A strip of Darice black adhesive backed acrylic gems were added to either side of the ribbon.
The sentiment was stamped on navy (2 3/4" x 1 1/4") card stock with embossing ink and heat embossed with Rubber Stampede Gold embossing powder (on my stove - as I STILL don't have a heat gun). It was mounted on black card stock and trimmed to size. Additional acrylic gems were added to each corner.
