Video: Clean Modern Background with Lots of Letters



Hello! Today I will show you how to use the border or rounded squares in my Lots of Letters set to make beautiful backgrounds for quick cards with gorgeous pops of color. Not just for spelling words,this set contains one of my favorite borders! All one color or a gorgeous gradient like I created here, it’s a very versatile backdrop for any design, including masculine cards. Although the border has such a bold and graphic feel, you can pair this with pretty, classic images. Sentiment and branch are from Theresa Momber’s Elegant Florals set. 


Supplies: 
Gina K. Designs Lots of Letters, Elegant Florals stamps sets
Gina K. Kraft, Sweet Corn, Sweet Mango, Tomato Soup, Dark Chocolate ink pads
Gina K. Pure Luxury Sweet Mango (5 ½” X 8 1/2”, scored at 4 ¼”) and White (3 7/8” x 5 ½” and 1” x 5 ½” scrap) cardstock
Scissors, foam squares, adhesive, acrylic blocks

If this card seems familiar to you, you've been following my blog a long time!  I posted this design when Lots of Letters was first released, but realized last week I hadn't done any videos with this set!  And I really like a lot of things about this design, simple to do but has a lot of punch!  hope you like it and wil try it yourself.  Have a fabulous weekend!

LOVE it. Great color combo, and I really like the retro look. I grew up in the 50's, so it brings back memories! LOL!!!!
