One Layer Border Background

I have a great card to share with you and I have to thank Beth at Sunflowers and Dragonflies for her great tutorial on a one layer border background technique! Beth has a great blog with tutorials every Tuesday and it's definitely worth the time to look through her wonderful creations!

Check out how fabulous a flat card can be!!!

And, what if you take a longer "mask" and create a border on the inside of the card? Love it!!!

Here's with a square mask for the top layer - Isn't it pretty?

So, which stamp sets and colors did I use for my cards?
Palette inks: Orangerie, Cote D'Azure and Cognac
Stamps: Circle Sampler, Flowers and Holly, Swirlies
Paper: Ivory cardstock

That's it and you can make soooo many variations. I can't wait to try more!!

Happy Stamping and Thanks again, Beth, for a fabulous and fun technique!
