I used the markers in a couple of different ways on this card. After stamping the sentiment upside down on the card front!!!! Arrrggghhhhh, I saved it by cutting and embossing the sentiment using a Spellbinders Labels Ten die. I used my marker to just go around the edge to give it a little pop. I embossed a piece of the yellow card stock with Swiss Dots folder on the inside to back it and popped it up with foam squares. I also cut/embossed a duck and added the negative side to the inside as well to have the backside of the embossing showing through. I also used markers to color the seam binding before wetting and scrunching it. The bottom border is cut/embossed using Spellbinders Baby and backed with purple to show off the teddy bears before adhering it to the card front. I used these colors to coordinate with a gift bag. Isn't this perfect for the twins????

Great save on your initial boo boo...isn't it amazing what we can do to fix things that "happen"..this will be great for a baby card..love the border and the seam binding ribbon (I used distress inks to do the same today).

What a fun take on "taking markers to the next level". Very creative to think of inking up your seam binding for this challenge. I have adhered things on upside down...you gotta love when that happens...NOT! I can relate...
