Thank You Card Using a Unique Trim Coloring Technique

Welcome back to The Handcrafting Hideaway! Today, I am excited to share an idea that came to me a few days ago while at my day job. I couldn’t wait until after the kids were in bed, so I could try it out!

The Natural Wavy Trim is only offered in one color, but with the technique I’m showing today, you can make it into so many different colors.

That’s right, it’s that simple. Break out your Stampin’ Blends markers and color to your hearts content! Note: The natural color of the trim will make the final color a slightly different color than the marker, but it gives it a very rustic vibe.
