Gingersnap Creations Visiting Artist 2

Hi, at Gingersnap Creations today the fabulous team would love to see your projects that include border punches. I do hope you will go over and see the amazing inspiration that the Gingers have created, it really is fabulous.


The main focal point of my 8in x 8in card is a digital image I created myself using downloads from various places. I printed it out on thin card and then covered it in embossing ink and heat embossed using clear EP. I left if to cool off completely and cracked it a bit by just bending the image slightly. Then I mounted it onto white and then deep burgundy card.


The rest of the design is made using DCVW striped card with some glitter in it, a spellbinders border and Tim Holtz vintage lace border. I made a vintage butterfly using an artemio stamp and covered it with crackle accents. A Prima rose, some leaves and pearls finish it off.


Let's see your borders at Gingersnaps and enjoy the rest of your week.
