Beyond Basic Borders: Creative Card Edging

Too Kind Card Idea: 2-Step Stamping with Stamps in the Mail Club kits from LovenStamps

Ever get tired of folding your card stock in half and calling it a card?  Here’s a fun way to make a creative use of your card edges for a little extra visual effect.

Creative Card Edging Tutorial:

  1. Fold basic card stock in half.
  2. Trim away 3/4″ or more from the front card edge.
  3. Apply ribbon, Designer Series Paper or stamp images on the inside of the card.  Position so that the decoration peeks through to the front of the card when closed.
  4. Add another decorative element by attaching a punched border to the back side of the card front as shown.

Love this card?  You can make it at home with my Stamps in the Mail Club Kit for August of 2013!

  1. Thanks Meg for the reminder about how much fun and pop factor this idea gives a card. Especially like the way it steps up a one layer card. The new rotary trimmer with it’s cool edging blades will really add to the fun too and quicker than a punch. Once I wrap my head around the idea that it’s okay to cut away the card front the ideas start flowing. Funny how cutting away a strip seems like mutilating the canvas when die cutting a window feels like adding something. {grin} Thanks again for sharing. I get so many good ideas from your blog. Keep them coming please!
