I worked this up for this week's Crafty Secrets challenge over at Splitcoast, themed "beyond the fold." By beyond the fold, they mean that you can stamp, embellish or otherwise decorate your card beyond the card front.
I chose to create a punched border around the outside of the standard sized card front. Because I don't have any Not Quite Navy ribbon, I substituted a piece of Not Quite Navy card stock under the Always Artichoke seam binding.

Paper: Not Quite Navy, Always Artichoke, Vanilla, Springtime Vintage ds
Ink: Black, Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke, Blush Blossom, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, More Mustard, Really Rust, Cajun Craze
I've been stamping for about 12 years or so and have been an independent Stampin Up! demonstrator for 8 years. I don't do many workshops, but am mainly a hobbyist -- and love it!
Stamping has given me an outlet for my creativity, for which I am truly grateful. I'm also a member of the Paper Crafters Sampler and the Splitcoast Stampers Creative Crew design teams. I hope that you enjoy my blog!
