Technique Tuesdays

Ready to see how easy it is to make a custom hand drawn border?

Start with a background grid
Stamp your images on your card base

Lay your card down lined up on your grid and use a ruler to measure in 1/4" from the edge of the card.
Use the ruler edge to guide your marker and stop a little shy
of 1/4" from the bottom edge.
Rotate your card 1/4 turn, line up and run your marker again.

Once you have drawn your border around all 4 sides it looks like this!
Now it is always fun to add some bling to a card so I grabbed the Red Glitz Glitter Gel and dabbed some on my holly berries to sparkle it up a little bit.

Here is one more shot of it all done.

Come back tomorrow to kick off a month's worth of quotes on friendship!
