This card fits today's Splitcoaststampers color challenge to use Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue and Melon Mambo. Since I didn't get the card made ahead I had planned for TIPsy Tuesday, I just combined the challenge and the mitered corner frame.
Yesterday's blog post with the Fishing layout also uses mitered corners with the stripe paper cut a different direction for an interesting effect.
Here is my method of mitering paper corners. It uses overlaping paper rather than trying to cut all the corners at angles and butting the edges together. This way is easier and more forgiving if your cuts aren't perfectly straight.
Cut paper in strips the width you want your frame. In my case, I cut stripes out of designer paper to get the desired colors eliminating the So Saffron that was also in this DSP.
- Glue down the long sides. Lay the smaller lengths on top.
