Summer Scrapbook Border

Step 1: Using the Lace Trim Border Punch, punch a border with the pink patterned paper. Trim it to measure 12″ x 3-1/4″ to create your base.

Step 2: Do the same with Black Cardstock and trim the border to measure 3″ high. Layer it on top of the pink patterned paper so the scallops show. Punch another border with the white dot patterned paper and trim it to measure 2-7/8″ high. Layer it on top of the Black Cardstock border so just the scallops show.

Step 3: Cut a 12″ x 1-1/4″ strip of the red floral patterned paper and adhere it to the top of the border. Place a pink and orange floral border sticker on the seam as shown.

Step 4: Adhere watermelon slice stickers with Foam Squares to the left side of the border. Add orange/white and green bars, “Summer” and starburst dot stickers as shown.

  1. I was just trying to make the card and the measurement for the pink and white dot pattern is off. I had to cut off about 1 3/4″ and punch it again. Can you verify? The borders and card are super cute!
