MFP Sketch with a Twist #38 - Use a Fancy Border

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.

 I'll bet they have a great stamp set ready to give someone!

Have a terrific Tuesday, my crafting friends!
