Hello everyone!!! It's my turn to host the Technique Challenge on Splitcoast and boy, have I got an easy one for you today!!!! We are going to Fill in the background with border diecuts!!
Here are the deets:
1. Use one or more border dies or punches to cut several diecuts.
You can use cardstock or patterned paper.
You can use one color or several different colors.
You can use only one border die or several different ones.
2. Overlap the diecuts on you background so you don't see any of the background (You can use them horizontally, vertically, or at an angle)
3. After you are satisfied with your design, adhere the diecuts to the background.
A little tip: Add a couple strips of double sided tape to the background before you lay out your borders...if you glue them down before you finish your design, it's too late to change your mind or fix one that is a little crocked. When you are finished playing, lift the edges and add a little glue.
My card features the little ice cream cone and popsicle stamps from My Cute Stamps You're Sweet set....they were colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up over the scalloped background with foam dots. Several different pastel colored scraps of card stock were used for the scalloped background and the twine and PTI sentiment finish it off.
Thanks for popping in tonight...be sure to check out the TLC challenge on Splitcoast...hope you can join us!!!!
