Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Awesomely Artistic Large Bordered Card Tutorial

Oooo, it’s not often that I have a card project on a video tutorial, but I enjoyed doing them during SpringWatch, so I thought I’d have another go!

As you know, I taught the other week how I layer up cards by making my mats and layers 0.5cm (1/4″) smaller and narrower, but today I show a different layering technique!

So in this case my first layer, the black, is 1.5cm shorter and narrower. If you work in imperial, try 5/8″ or 3/4″ and see how it looks.

My white layer is then the usual 0.5cm (1/4″) narrower and shorter.

I love the look and effect of this larger border. What do you think??

    I just order that stamp set…love your card. I was wondering have you ever made a box that you could fit a Stampin Up stamp set in…cd size. Thank you for all your wonderful cards and boxes that you share. I have used so many of the boxes and all my friends love them.
