Hi there friends, I’m back today with another Stacked Border. If you looked at my post yesterday, I mentioned that one of my favorite easy cards is using a border and moreover stacking the pattern to get a 3/4 border or a full background. While my background yesterday was 3/4, I wanted to show you how easy it is to get a full background – from one die. Today the grace of Spellbinders Renaissance Border Two gave me yet another reason to stack an exquisite border.
I simply merged the borders vertically, interlocking points in order to create the background. I glued each point with a small dot of Ranger Glossy Accents, its quick and easy and does not leave a mess. After glueing, I decided to highlight each intersection with a pearl just to give the pattern some punch. The beauty of this design was when oriented vertically I could continue to add on sections that I imagine I could do the same with a scrapbook page if I wanted to!
I sure didn’t want to cover up the detail of the background, so I chose a small vertical die to highlight my sentiment. I used Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and on top of it layered the oval tag from Spellbinders Renaissance Tags One so as not to compete too much with the background. Now, not all borders will work but you will know which ones will work after you play around with them. What a lovely way to get another use! I hope you’ll play!

(***Note, many of you ask which paper I use for my cards and I have linked it up above to Amazon however, absurdly, the picture they show is a generic photo they use to represent every paper. I have ordered from this link and can confirm that what I received was Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White – Cover – 80lb smooth – 250 sheets. For an avid cardmaker, a ream will last quite long – I order every 6 months). Here is the link for the white paper I use – Neenah Classic Crest – Solar White – Cover – 80lb smooth)
