Faux Stitching Tips for House of Cards

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

I'm honored to be representing House of Cards Team 2 and bringing you a tip on behalf of the team for our current challenge, Stitch It Up. Please do check out the group post here.

Border stamps are great for adding faux stitching to your project. They are quick and easy to use and aren't just for around the edges, they can be used to create great backgrounds too! Here I've used the same stamp set, Bohemian Borders from Stampin' Up!, as in my original card (see below for that one), to give you another example of how they can be used...

There are a couple others in the set that would work really well as frames and I'll be sharing another card with you, using those images, later in the month.

Card: Whisper White and Crumb Cake
Ink: Tempting Turquoise and Rich Razzleberry
Stamp sets: Bohemian Borders and Tag Talk
Tools: Bracket Label Punch
Adhesives: Tear & Tape and Stampin' Dimensionals

Original card, posted September 1st...
