Borders, Borders Everywhere

Let me preface by saying that it is HIGH time I get myself in a Copic class.  I had one heck of a time coloring the face on this today, but I have vowed to practice more with them in the hopes that I will eventually learn to love them!

I've had very little crafty time lately, so I decided to enter a couple of challenges today so I would at least get to play a little before I dig in & get back to the drudgery of housework!  I based my card on a sketch for Which One Wednesday at the TGF Farm Fresh Challenge Blog, and opted to go all-in with some border strips for the Beautiful Borders Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.   Go check them out and you can play along too!

I love how she just happens to fit in the circle design so perfectly; like she's lounging around there.

I used the following supplies to make my card:
  • Kraft card base
  • Springtime papers from Echo Park
  • Black and white cardstock
  • Cheeky Rockabilly stamp from The Greeting Farm
  • Copic markers
  • Ribbon from the Animal Crackers Jack collection by Making Memories
  • Border punches from (top to bottom) Martha Stewart Crafts, EK Success, Martha Stewart Crafts, & Stampin' Up!
  • ATG adhesive, Scor-tape (for the bottom 2 borders), and foam pop dots
Shameless plug: the Echo Park papers, The Greeting Farm stamp, Copic markers, and all adhesives are available over at Cutters Creek!

Thanks for stopping by; I always love to read your comments!  If you feel so inclined, I would also love for you to become a follower (I also have email and reader options).


    1. Such a cute card! I love how you used the different borders.

    2. I love your card. The image is colored so nicely too. And the creative way you used the borders is cool. Hugs, Fran
