Outlines Rubber Stamp Challenge - Beautiful Borders

Hello!!!  It's Monday and time for a new Outlines Rubber Stamp design team challengeJoin the Design Team in our weekly challenges with a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate each week!  Please check out the details of how to play and win on the Outlines Blog

This week our challenge was to create a card with Beautiful Borders.  I hope you'll create along with us this week!


My project looks deceptively simple, doesn't it?  I thought I'd make the Triple Stripe Strip border image (E-686) the main player.  I stamped the border three times, twice in brown pigment ink and once with pink pigment ink, embossing with clear powder and setting.  I carefully trimmed and layered on my cardfront.  I used my fingernail to gently tip the edges up to give the card extra dimension.

I'd love it if you stopped by to visit the other designers for more inspiration.  And don't forget you can join in our fun!
