Here is my first card:

and a detail shot:
I stamped the corner border on black cardstock with Daisy White.  I heat set the white ink before applying red, orange and yellow from color pencils.  I started with the red and then blended orange and finally blended orange and yellow.  The final touch is the white dots applied with the daisy white marker.

Here is the second card:

This card uses the v shaped border.  I cut out a mask of the sentiment and border and stamped the background of the colonial white 4 x 5 paper.  I then used the mask to lay a blank white sentiment cutout on and used the that as my guide to stamp in green the matching image for to the background.  After stamping the green, I replaced the mask cutout with the actual matting for the sentiment.  The border is from the Art of Philosophy Cricut cartridge and is doubled over (the dimension is 1 1/2").  After doubling, I made the edges pop out by brushing the edges with cocoa ink.  The doubled over border is tucked behind the stamped 4 x 5 cover and sewed onto the kraft card.  Buttons in coordinating colors are adhered with glue dots after tying with hemp.

Here is a detail shot :
