SSS November Card Kit Challenge Week - Day 5

It's the last day of my November Card Kit challenge week… thanks again for sharing your ideas of how you would like me to use my kit.
Day 5's challenge:

Border Stamps

Someone asked me to make a card with the striped border stamp in the Be Joyful stamp set from the kit. OK, I admit it… I always ignore these border stamps in stamp sets. I am not sure I have ever used one… and that is a pretty poor effort. So this challenge really appealed to me. And yes, I have hardly been inventive in the way I have used it, but it has been used… and that's enough for me. :)
For this card, I embossed the tree and border on white cardstock with Simon's new Silver Embossing Powder. This is LOVELY quality by the way. Really smooth and fine. I hand cut the tree, leaving a thin white border, then added an enamel heart and some silver thread loops.
Silver Tree by Lucy Abrams This is a tall and thin card - just 3 1/2" wide. It's fun to create different size cards once in a while. :)

I hope you have enjoyed my challenge week. Thanks again to all those who made suggestions. Sorry if I did not pick your idea, but I've done a bit of research for you and found the following, all created with the November card kit:
A colourful shaker card that features lots of layers
A card that uses 3 different patterned papers
A very cool card that features the solid image tree in different colours
Hope these help you.
Have a lovely weekend.
Bye for now.
