Creating Laser Cuts from Stamps

When I saw the components that made up the border in Lace Delight, I was inspired to create “laser cut” edging.

One impression of the border on white cardstock in Onyx Black VersaFine heat embossed with clear powder was all that I needed for the elements.  Segmented portions of the design were colored with Copics BG 13 and 15.  After fussy cutting the outline, a craft knife was used for the ovals and a tiny hole punch for the circles.

Tangelo Memento ink was the perfect match for the Paisley Swirls stamped on Summer Sun cardstock.

Dry embossed vertical lines were positioned at the bottom of a 3 x 4 ¾ top-folded card before the decorative piece was attached with dimensional foam. 

I also found that Turquoise Gem VersaMagic for the sentiment matched the colors of the Copic markers.

Here is a second version which has de-embossed dots added to the top.

Thank you for sharing your time and "blog hugs" with me …. they are enjoyed immensely!
