Default Inked lines around edge of cards?

This might be a silly question, but I have seen some really nice one layer cards that have inked lines bordering the card like this FS245 Faith by hskelly - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers and I am wondering how it is done? Is there a stamp for this, do you use a ruler and a marker or something else? I really love the look of this and would love to know how to do it myself. I have even seen some cards that have the saying or a word near the bottom of the card and the lines go out and around the card from there. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I love that look too. I usually just cut a smaller square and trace around it. I can't get lines straight, even with a ruler

Thank you, that is a great idea. What would you do though if you had a saying or other image like in the card that I used for an example?

PTI has a set called Framed (under the Stamps, Borders section) that has a couple of stamps with the lines, but each one has one opening in it (as opposed to multiple openings like the one you linked to as an example). Myself, I usually use a clear grid ruller with a fine point, pigment ink marker.

Well, if you had a saying or something like on that card, even with a smaller rectangle as a mask, you would see the image overlap. By that I mean that some portion of the image would hang out from under the mask, so you could avoid drawing your line through it. If you were really worried, you could use a square of vellum or acetate as a mask so you would see exactly where to end your lines so that they don't go through the image.

I use a ruler. First I mark the corners using the piece of plastic canvas that I use as a piercing template, and then I just use a fine black marker. And as above, if there's text or an image, you can see it so you just skip round it.

Here is a wonderful video tutorial by Nicole Heady at Papertrey. It shows her method for drawing frames on cards using a black precision pen and a ruler. Check it out:

What a pain, can't see video on my satellite connection but almost all tutorials these days are video. Thousands of rural folks don't have internet access except by satellite. Nicole was soooo good at step-by-step instructions, you might guess the one I really want most has been turned into a video I can"t view.

This is a great idea. I'll try using this technique next time I do a line frame.

I watched the video and I hope it inspires everyone to dig out their fine-point scrapbooking markers and use them on some cards. Early on in scrappin' there were a ton of hand-drawn details, borders and doodles. Kinda fell out of fashion, it seems, and I hope it comes back!

I have made a bunch of these, so I made a cardboard template to trace around. My template is 4 1/4 x 3" and I use cardstock of 5 x 3 3/4" .

Here's a sample

What a nice reminder, I too remember making art lines on early cards. I used a ruler but like the template idea so will try that. Thanks all.....

I now remember a stamping buddy who did that years ago. She would cut different size rectangles from stencil plastic to make templates. Can't remember how she did it, though (X-acto knife or a stencil cutting tool perhaps).

She used these around the greeting on a card front, not the whole card as is being discussed. But for a standard size A2 card it would be worth the effort to make one. Seems it would be easier to make a rectangle drawing inside a template than getting the corners to meet perfectly drawing around something or with a ruler.

I make "frames" on my cards quite a bit. I, however, just do it by hand and they end up more like doodles than a perfect frame.....which I like and fits on the cards I am doing. I do it on fun/cutesy cards so its like 2 lines going around that will intersect and cross over each other. I dont want it to be perfect.

I use a copic black liner pen. I have various pens to make different width lines.

Ahh, good idea. This sounds doable, though I have 7 different rulers to help me, plus the thing-a-ma-jig and an old fashioned lucite Stamp Positioner, and still often end up with gallywampum lines.

thanks for the idea!

I have also seen whimsical lines that are not straight. That way you don't need to worry! Oooooops! Someone gave you that idea already!

Maybe Harriet can chime in here as she made the card you mentioned. I also remember a lesson on this from Susan/Lateblossom who does all CAS cards. I have done a couple of these

I love using this technique, so to insure I get the line where I want it with a marker, I use a clear ruler and a pencil. Then I use my metal ruler, that is raised underneath, and a marker. Otherwise, I have the marker ink run under the edge of the flat, clear ruler. Using the raised ruler is the only way I can prevent this.

I love this. What a fun card, very nice. If I did this it'd look like I scribbled on it.

What a great idea to use the nestabilities. I might just try that

For this card and many others I trace a line very lightly with a pencil using a Nestability. Then I stamp the image where I want it. Next I use a Copic Microliner and a ruler and go over the pencil lines. Lastly I erase any pencil line that still shows. Hope this helps.

I have used a clear plastic ruler from Welcome to Dj Views**A C-Thru Ruler Company for years. Worn out 5 or 6 of those suckers over time. It is a grid ruler which has lines going left to right and top to bottom. Lines are 1/8" apart the long 12" way and 1/2" apart on the narrow side. You are able to square off anything you do once you get the hang of it. Just imagine you are making one corner of a square. Line up one line going in one direction with a line going in the other direction. If I want a 1/4" frame I just put the 2nd line on the edge of the cardstock and make pencil marks at the top and bottom. Same on the sides. Once the pencil marks are made you can use any fine line color or black & white marker for your liines. You can erase the pencil lines when done. Being able to see through the ruler is a big help. You can see where you stamped and can tell where to start and stop.
I've even figured out how to make sure my layers are exactly the same width all around the top piece. All it takes is this see through ruler and an Xacto Knife. Perfect every time and you can stack as many layers as you want and still have it great.
I'd do a tutorial but I am sooo computer illiterate. I hope this is understandable. If you had the ruler in your hands you could probably figure it out from my instructions.

I use a 6" Omnigrid ruler. It is see through and is usually sold where they sell quilting supplies. I use it with a Micron pen if doing black lines, like a dot and dash. Other frames I do in color I use markers with a pen end. Corridinate colors with cards also work.

You could also use frame pieces, like see through clear stamps. To miter the corners use post it notes to miter the corners.

I couldn't agree more! We live so close to the city limits I can almost touch the line, yet we have Satellite TV and DSL Internet that is SLOW! It's nearly impossible to watch videos. It's very disappointing to miss all the tutorials!!

I love this line-framed look, too; think it's a very classy look. Also remember similar hand drawn techniques from my early days of scrapbooking (BCM-Before Card Making)! I always wanted more tips on techniques for making those hand drawn or doodled accents look as good as the ones I saw in magazines (before my days of haunting the Internet!). It was an inexpensive way of adding personalization and pizzazz to those pages. Thanks for all the tips on ways to do this effectively.

I also wanted to say to my post but forgot to add....

If I am doing a "nice line", meaning not one of my doodle lines, I sometimes will use an acrylic stamp block and then I can see my image and line it up within the area and use the edges of the block to draw my frame.

@jackie - I clicked on the link you gave us in your original post and then I clicked on the link that was in that post. The answer to your question is there. It's very simple how they did it. They masked the flowers that fall along the border, then took a piece of card stock cut to the dimension they want and then drew around it with some kind of SU marker pen. So, the answer was in the link you gave us to begin with, winkwink.

Your doodling is amazing. When I have tried that it looked like my 3 year old drew on my card. Someone make me a stamp that looks just like kspiv's, please?

Default I don't do layers...

I rarely ever do layers, so I do a lot of lines with marker and ruler. If I'm doing a border (like 1/8") around the very edge of the card, I make a few measuring marks with a mechanical pencil to line it up. Then I set the ruler in place and just run along it with a marker. For inside lines, if they're fairly thick I'll draw both sides of the line with mechanical pencil (because it stays really sharp), then fill in with marker. If it's the inside of a small box, I'll just use the tip of the marker (Crayola supertips) to get the width.
