Make it Monday-Creative Card Borders

Good day to you!  The wonderful Danielle Flanders has put together another awesome Make it Monday Challenge - to use non-border dies to create borders.  I am such a whine-bag, in that I often cringe at these challenges - what is wrong with just old-fashioned stamping?....and all that...

But a challenge isn't a challenge if you don't at least try, so being the trooper that I am - right??!

I used the Scent-sational (hah!) Scent-imental Stamp Set and matching dies, along with the sentiment from We Go Together to create my card.


I stamped the cute little cups with Spring Rain and Sweet Blush ink and then I made a coffee cup mask with a pop up note. I laid the mask on top of the images and then, using Spring Moss and Ripe Avocado ink, stamped the leaves from The Sweet Life behind for a little interest.



The Bitty Dots basics paper inside the card is Lavender Moon - it seemed like a closer match that the Sweet Blush paper....go figure.

To see how you create a card similar to this one - check out the Make It Monday video at Papertrey Ink - fabulous!
