Hi there friends, I have a card to share to day and it uses a technique that earlier I had promised I would share; I’m sharing the card and the technique today. When you make cards that have borders on the bottom, it’s important that the border is strong enough to support the card. What I’m showing you today will make the border strong enough to support the card and will look finished on the inside – I call it Encased Borders.
Here are the four steps to make your border strong, give it a nice clean finished edge, make it pretty inside and that wonderful look as though it’s floating. I made mine using Spellbinders Mary Border Strip and added a sentiment to my 4-1/4″ x 9″ (business envelope sized) card using Serendipity Stamps – I’m Beginning to Learn and accenting it with Spellbinders Adorning Accents

Craft Paper: Neenah Classic Crest 80 lb Smooth (Cover) – Natural White, Gold Poster Board – Hobby Lobby
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
