Make It Monday Custom Border & cQc

Just a quick post today.  I'm entering this card in the Make It Monday #217-Custom Borders Challenge and ColourQ Challenge #297.


I started by cutting the buttons from the Nostalgic Notions kit and stamping them with Pure Poppy, Enchanted Evening and Hawaiian Shores.  I attached them to the edge of my card base and then backed them with white paper to make them pop.  I added a strip of Pure Poppy paper to hide the seam.  

I cut the flowers from the Nostalgic Notions kit from white paper and stamped them with the same colors as the buttons.  The lighter shades are the result of stamping off once on scrap paper.  The leaves are stamped directly on the card base with Classic Kraft ink.  

I added a sentiment from the same stamp set using Hawaiian Shores and Pure Poppy, as well as the little corner images.

All products used are Papertrey Ink.

That's it for today!  Thanks for stopping in!


  1. So pretty - the border is such a lovely element! Thanks for playing along at Colour Q!

  2. Fabulous, fabulous card on kraft!! You and I were thinking the same as I used the same set to make my card. I do, however LOVE this done on kraft!!

    1. Saw it and loved it! Pinned it even! :) Very pretty and well balanced! :)

  3. Pretty! What a nice result you got on the flowers by stamping off. I need to try that; it will give so many more color possibilities.
