Corners, borders and dies–oh my!


Hmmmm, have I gone crazy with this new border punch? Maybe, but it is so fun!

The card front is designer paper in shades of purple and green (some of my favorite colors). The next layer is a coordinating dp with the same colors, but a white background matted with the deep purple cardstock. I then embossed that with the Cuttlebug swiss dots folder. Here comes that wonderful border punched layer with olive colored card stock. The image panel is that dark purple once again with two different sizes of the leaf image. First the larger one is stamped with white pigment ink and dried. I then stamped the smaller image with the same white pigment ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I punched several small flowers from the designer paper, adding green and purple centers and adding them to that leaf image. The top right corner on that panel is a cuttlebug Fancy corner die cut Vintage Square. The buttons are cut/embossed from the dark purple card stock using Spellbinders Timeless Heritage threaded with embroidery floss and popped up to different heights using glue dots and foam squares.
