First up, I have some cards with Whimsical Wildflower Frame. There are many ways to use these borders from Hannah's set, but I wanted to use one on each card, in both portrait and landscape layout, to showcase these long greetings. I chose a different new stencil for each that work well with the style of illustration. I selected the GKD Stormy Sky ink to go with the "difficulty" greeting (and pink coloring and cardstock so that it's "coming up roses") masking off the center with Purple Tape before blending the inks over the stencil. All my blending is done with the Life Changing Brushes. All brush sets can be found in that link, choose the best assortment for you. :)
For this next card I stamped the other border twice near the top in GKD Jet Black Amalgam ink to make a space for the greeting and then blended some GKD Lucky Clover over the Leafy Stencil very softly to complement the foliage. Don't underestimate the impact you can make from just the teeniest bit of stenciling, it does not always have to be solid, use multiple colors, or cover the entire mat to stand out! So many looks! I kept the coloring very simple as well. Cardstock is GKD white and Peach Bellini.
On the second card I did the same, but created a diagonal background with the wave border for two sets of prints to follow along: one human, and one with paws! I offset the greeting with GKD Chocolate Truffle ink to help it pop more and work as a sentiment, rather than something that looked like it was literally written in the sand like the card above.
