This week's Make it Monday challenge is to use border dies to create a background. I decided to pull out my XL Rickrack die and create a multi-colored background by layering the die-cuts like "stripes".
My color palette is Canyon Clay, Summer Sunrise, Spring Moss and Spring Rain. I cut several pieces in each color and then adhered them to a white base, but making sure that the rickrack extended on both the top and bottom. Then I trimmed the edges of the whole panel, stamped it with Polka Dot Basics 2 in Versamark, wrapped a Summer Sunrise ribbon around it and adhered it to my kraft card base. The focal point uses Mat Stack 4 (also stamped in Versamark), a Doily Details die and a Limitless Layer circle, stamped with the border from Tag Its #10. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Little Labels, and I finished things off with a twine-tied Tiny Tag. The Mat Stack is popped up on foam adhesive, and the doily is popped up on the Mat Stack.
Thanks for looking!
