Thank you for being so sweet...


I am here today with another Avery Elle Guest Post.  Today's card uses the new set called Bonjour.

First, I flipped the border image from the set over, and stamped it on the card base with Versamark.  More stripes.  Diggin' those!  :)  On the tag die, I stamped 2 cookies and did a little masking.  I stamped the outline in a darker color and the inside in a lighter but similar color.  The sentiment I masked off so it could fit in too!  I added a little bit of bling and some ribbon to finish it off.

A couple tips on the stripes:
1. Stamp over the top of your stripes a second time when using Versamark for a slightly darker image.
2. Use a big block so you can see all around the stripe.  This will help with lining up your stripes much easier!

Can't wait to hear what you think!  Hope you are having a great day!
