Single-border design card

Arrrgghh!! I really really really wanted this one to be a single layered card! And it would be if I could do double-stamping properly!! 😥

This card is inspired by this pin I saw in Pinterest. I wanted to replicate the single side border idea.

I grabbed my Batik Cartouches stamp set by Inkadinkado and Ginger Adirondack ink and eye balled and stamped the images in a single column.

I wanted to add my sentiment using the same color and I knew that some of my stamps didn’t work well with this ink (or some other dye inks either). They would get stamped in splotches or get dotty. So I first wanted to try this on a scrape piece of paper.

I stamped it for the first time, and as expected, the sentiment was splotchy. I tried double stamping – and here I have to say that I am most definitely not good at double stamping. I first thought of giving it a shot and then go for the card only if I could succeed – and I did. Hence thinking that I would try the double stamping on my card, I went ahead – and – big wonder, I messed up big time!! 😦 And so, I had to go with another layer for the sentiment. And guess what the double stamping came out as well as it could! Arrghh! Why oh, why!

Anyway, I added the sentiment on the stripe of card stock, lined the edges with the same ink after cutting a triangle on one of the sides.

So, this ended being a double layered card! Hope you enjoyed. Thanks for looking!
