Here is my last Grid technique sample.


I made this card to show off a grid on a rectangle, a non stamped grid as well as a grid with a border around it.

The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Basic Black cardstock, layered with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Berry Bliss Designer paper.

The designer paper corners were punched with the ticket corner punch and a dotted border was added with the white gel pen.

For my grid panel I started out with a 3 1/8″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Shimmery White cardstock. I scored 1/2″ border on each side, then scored my diagonal panel inside the border. After I was done the 1/2″ border seemed to big for this piece, so I cut it down to a 1/4″.

The now 2 5/8″ x 4″ border was layered on a 1/8″ bigger piece of Basic Black. Double Stitched Purely Pomegranate ribbon was tied about both layers.

Next is a Purely Pomegranate scallop rectangle. The rectangle was made by cutting a long scallop rectangle with Nestabilities, cutting it down some and putting it back together to make the perfect layer for my grid. The grid layers were attached with dimensionals to the scalloped layer.

I knew I wanted to keep the sentiment small so I wouldn’t cover up the grid. I chose a stamp from the Bursting with Joy stamp set. I stamped the image twice, once in Black Stazon, once in Purely Pomegranate on Shimmery White Cardstock. I cut the heart out of the Pomegranate image and taped it over the black one. It was punched out with the 1 3/8″ circle punch and was layered on a black scallop circleDimensionals were used to adhere this layer to the card.

 And yes…I go through a LOT of dimensionals! I love them!
