For this card I used a border stencil and inks from the lighter end of a Kaleidacolor Fresh Greens pad, then inverted the stencil to match up with the original one and stencilled again to create a wide border. The border is actually exactly 5cm wide, one third of the 15 cm card, although it looks smaller. I think it's because of the optical illusion that makes white space look larger, something we often subconsciously take advantage of when we are making CAS cards.
I've added a second optical illusion by using a fine liner to edge the border, giving it a slightly three dimensional look even though it is all one layer.
Finally I stamped the sentiment over the stencilled background, stamping several times to make it really stand out.
