Edgy details with Vinyl Stickerz

This week the challenge over at 2 Sketches 4 You is to not only to design a card based on the sketch but also to get a little creative with your cardmaking skills by working in some sort of decorative edge on your card.

The tools we have available to us to jazz up our cards are so varied and I bet many of you have a variety within arms reach on your craft table.  Idea's that come to mind to create a schmancy edge are decorative scissors, border punches, die templates, pre-cut templates etc and if all else fails - trace your own design and trim by hand.  I used Spellbinders brand new Grand Nestabilities Grand Labels Four to cut my card from thin kraft chipboard.  When you fold the label in half it forms a detailed decorative edge on your card.

The sponsor for COTW at 2S4Y is E.A.D Designs.  I loved working with their vinyl Stickerz which are repositional!  Head on over and to 2 Sketches 4 You and play along to stand a chance of winning a gift certificate from E.A.D. Designs.

We had such an amazing weekend filled with a ton of activities including a day in the mountains viewing the spectacular fall colors.  The Aspen are magnificent this time of year.

Have a great Monday. See you tomorrow for a Mint Motif post...
