Design It Monday ~ {Trends}

Hello, I’m so happy you stopped by for another Deign It Monday! I hope you’ve been enjoying all of the fabulous work from the DT using the new {Journey Stamp Set}. I sure have! I have one last card to share featuring this set. Today I thought I would step out of my comfort zone and try something a bit trendy. I’m not one to jump on the trend band wagon the minute it leaves the gate. I’m usually late to that parade!

Triangles and arrows are among all things trendy now. I’ve added this border stamp to my card on the diagonal with multi colors of ink. This is one of my favorite color combos! A Martha Stewart score board was used to line up the arrows. It’s the small one and I love the size! This was done by making very light pencil lines for the spacing. After the stamping is done, simply erase the lines. Using the score board again, I made score lines with the same spacing on the rest of the white panel. Before attaching the panel to the Aqua Mist card base, I tied some red button twine around it.

A bit of selective inking was done on the sentiment. It’s was matted with kraft card stock then added to the card with foam tape. My twine was fancied up a bit with a loopy bow! This card would be another great way to send a photo to a family member or friend.

Thank you so much for stopping by, we appreciate your visits!
