Ink to Paper :: Joy of Card Making :: Layouts
It's going to be another holiday inspiration-filled month at Ink to Paper! Each week there's a new theme featuring a different project by a Design Team member. This week, it's all about the Joy of Card Making, because that's what many of us enjoy creating most of all.
A few helpful tips:
1. Use this layout with whichever card orientation you prefer--horizontal or vertical. I've offered an example of each.
2. Fill the sentiment space with any kind of message--a few small words, a longer phrase, a simple stamped sentiment like 'Merry Christmas' or 'Season's Greetings', or insert a larger die cut like the To Die For: Christmas words.
3. You can use a literal frame around the outer edge of the card, such as the Border Bling dies, or simply choose to matte different sizes of cardstock panels instead. You might even try a stamped border. (Your border doesn't have to be stitched!)
