CTMH Product Spotlight Blog Hop: Kraft Color-Ready Borders

Welcome to the July edition of the Close To My Heart product spotlight blog hop! This month, we have a select group of consultants playing around with our fabulous Kraft color-ready borders. You get 50 of these precut, self-adhesive borders for only $5.95! (If you arrived here from Jena's blog then you're on the right path.)

I'm entering this simple card in the City Crafter Challenge #65: Let the Sun Shine In!

For my sunny card, I used the back side of the Kraft borders. Instead of peeling off the backing, I sponged Sunny Yellow ink on it! They took the color well, and so I glued the front side of the borders to the card without peeling off the (sponged) backing. The partial circle of Sunny Yellow cardstock is adhered with 3-D foam tape to give the card more dimension.

I also used an edge of a piece of the border as a mask to sponge the inside bottom of the card. Finally, I sponged the leftover piece of border with Outdoor Denim ink and added a button with a sparkle to match the card. The Indian Corn Blue ricrac was an afterthough, but I thought it was a cute touch.

Now, go visit NIKKA to see her Krafty creation!

Fun card! I would have never thought of inking the back side of a kraft border, that opens a whole new world of color options for these. :)
