July Blog hop - Kraft borders

Welcome to this months blog hop. You should be coming from Haley's Blog. Like always, I am the last in the hop. But you can go to the begining at Wendy's Blog

This month we are showcasing our Kraft Borders. I used two different ones on my card. The first one if the very glittery one in the center. These borders are adhesive, so it made adding glitter a breeze. Yes, this is meant to be the back, but why not take advantage of the glue. Doing this tho reminds me why i don't use glitter. It gets everywhere. and it multiplies. i dont know how it does it. you have one spec of glitter on you, you dont touch any more. and when you leave the craft room, you are covered. I read once that glitter is the herpes of the crafting world and its true.

I just thought i lost all my typing. For some reason it deleted all i typed. Thankfully it autosaved and i caught it before it autosaved again. My computer has been pissing me off today.

Ok, back to the card. The second border are on both sides. It comes in the kraft color but can easily be colored. Now it is a different color then when you color on white. I used the the same purple on this card, but the borders are darker.

These colors are inspired by an ad i found in my interior design mag.
