YNS Fun Friday - creating a colorful border

Good morning everyone. Today is the second Your Next Stamp card post to share with you this month. Check out the YNS Fun Friday post here to see more fun creations there. Since the weather is getting better and better everyday, I feel like making a colorful project. Not long ago, I bought a Small Post Card Stamp set. The even better thing is YNS also have the matching Small Post Card Die Set for this stamp set. Of course if you get this Combo Set together, it will be cheaper too!!

Here is my finished card. I picked one of the bright and colorful DP. How about a fun border for this card? To create a colorful border, what I did was, to use a border punch to punch out matching color cardstocks in different width, then line them up and put them on the side edge to create a multi-coloring border.


Closer view of these stamps. I colored the stamps, then punched them out with the matching dies, then I also punched one more time on another piece. Put them together in between a foam dot/tape to make them pop up a little to create a dimension effect.

Thank you for visiting my project today and hope to share with you another YNS project again soon :o)
