Create a Fancy Edge on an Ink Smooshed Background

While on Instagram, I saw several projects being created with border dies. While I didn’t rush out to get the dies being used, (yet 😜) β€” I did look in my stash to see what I already had. This cute springtime card is the result. Of course I ink smooshed the background, because, well, I love ink smooshing with Distress Inks! I grabbed a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp that I hadn’t used yet for the butterfly and part of the sentiment. I also used a new die set I just purchased from Spellbinders for the die cut sentiment. As usual, super easy with great results.

Also, if you visit a store and what you want is out of stock, be sure and ask to be notified by email when the item is back in stock. It’s usually quite quick and always worth the wait. πŸ˜‰

Thanks for watching!

Remember, if mailing a card with layers and embellishments in the United States, be sure and buy “non-machinable” postage so your cards don’t get smooshed in the USPS postal machines.
