How do I remove the gray line around Folder thumbnail preview?

greetings all!

i joined the forum because i'm certain this is the right place to ask that question

I'm happy with my current folder look, it's a simple transparent edit of the beautiful work by Drawder White_Windows_7_Folders_by_Drawder
White Windows 7 Folders by Drawder on DeviantArt
however, if you look closely you'll notice a silly gray border around each picture/video!

How can i remove it completely so that it does not appear on folder picture preview?

Thanks

The gray border you are seeing is actually the folder. If you look closely, then look at the picture below, it matches up. If you edited it yourself, you will need to try to remove the folder completely or make it more visible.

LOL, forgot to post it. The folder lines on the picture below match up perfectly with the gray outline on your folder icon.
