A Year of Borders Now Available!

Here's the new set!

Here's a favorite card using "A Year of Borders" I shared at our Gina K Designs release party (click on "what's new" in the store to purchase the set and other fabulous new releases!!) Greeting is from the set "A Beautiful Life" (which coordinates with these butterflies) and polka dots are from "Vintage Backgrounds". Thanks to everyone who popped by the party, it was a fun one!! I will be floating around all day remembering the enthusiasm about this set, thanks for the love!


Start by stamping the polka dots in pink on white CS, then stamp the butterflies over it in black. Fill in just a few of the butterflies with a slightly deeper pink Copic, allowing the dots to show through some of the others. The matching butterfly from "A Beautiful Life" is popped up and bent to add dimension. I also traced the colored butterflies with a glitter pen. Mats are Black Onyx and Innocent Pink. i wanted a single delicate embellishment to accentuate the dainty butterflies so i added a single adhesive rhinestone to punctuate the greeting.
Have a beautiful day! and a terrific weekend if I don't see you again!! :)

Your butterfly card is fabulous, Mel! This set was included in my order this morning. Can't wait to play with it!
I just noticed that you have "Soli Deo Gloria" on the corner of your blog. It caught my eye because that is the motto for the college I attended!
