May Technique Challenge--Stamping on the Edge!
The host of the May Technique Challenge is Artist Team member, Roni Johnson. This month I thought it would be fun to encourage you to pull out your stamps and put them to good use. As I was sorting through some of my vintage greeting cards, I noticed that back in the 40's and 50's, many cards had a fancy border along the open edge. I knew I could recreate something similar in just a few short steps--three to be exact!
Color Me Happy stamps.The result? A card with a fancy stamped border that you can finish as desired. The following examples are just a few ways you might choose to decorate the card.
