More About the Border Dies

Hello friends! 

I am happy to share a card that I had so much fun creating! 
The vision came to me a while ago, I am glad that I gave it a go. 
My vision was to create an intricate yet interesting background with the border die.
Due to its size, it is fairly easy to do.

With the DIY watercolor paper that I created with Distress Oxide. I made two pieces of die cut.

Once I have done that, I thought the background looked "bare". I decided to stamp a simple colored background.

Next, it's the sentiment treatment. In order to keep the sentiment front and centered, I thought it looked great with a piece of black card stock. This Penny Black Stitched Loops Rectangles are awesome to have around.

Love the look of the die cut leaves with the delicate stamped background. It is such a pretty contrast. The black stitched die cut for the sentiment looks striking against the blue and white. The addition of the DMC metallic thread is the perfect embellishment.
