To create these borders and card, you will need:

Check out the Medallion Punch in the video below!

Border 1: It Seems Like Yesterday

Step 1: Using the 12-inch Trimmer Deckle Blade on one edge, cut a 12″ x 3-1/8″ strip from a piece of soft silver distressed patterned paper to create the base. Using the 12-inch Trimmer Deckle Blade on one edge again, cut a 12″ x 2-3/4″ strip from a piece of white patterned paper. Mount them on top of the base.

Step 2: Cut a 12″ x 1-7/8″ strip of argyle patterned paper. Using the Medallion Punch, punch five times at regular intervals along the length of the strip. Save three of the medallions for Border 2. Adhere this strip on the border, just below the edge of the white patterned strip.

Step 3: Punch five medallions from Black Cardstock. Place them in the circles created in the previous step.

Step 4: Adhere a filmstrip border sticker along the bottom of the argyle strip. Adhere banner flags, “Memories,” star and  “It Seems Like Yesterday” stickers as shown.

Border 2: Make This Moment Count

Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 2-3/4″ strip of argyle patterned paper for the base. Cut a 12″ x 2-1/2″ strip of tan striped patterned paper and mount it on top of the base. Layer a 12″ x 2″ strip of map patterned paper on top.

Step 2: Using the 12-inch Trimmer Deckle Blade, cut a 12″ x 1-1/8″ strip of music patterned paper and adhere it on the map patterned paper strip, about 1/8″ from the lower edge. Top it with a scalloped border sticker.

Step 3: Using the inside of the smallest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut three circles with the tan patterned paper. Mount three argyle paper medallions (saved from Border 1) on top. Adhere them to the left side of the border with Foam Squares.

Step 4: Add “Loving This,” “Make This Moment Count” and stars stickers as shown.

Card: This is Why I Love You

Step 1: Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Beige Cardstock. Use the 12-inch Trimmer Scoring Blade to score at the 4-1/4″ mark and fold to make the card.

Step 2: Cut a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of the insect study patterned paper and mount it on the front of the card.

Step 3: Using the Medallion Punch, punch four medallions with White Cardstock. Cut each medallion in half and adhere four halves near the lower edge of the card. Cut a 5-1/2″ x 3/4″ strip of tan stripe patterned paper and adhere it just above and overlapping the half medallions. Adhere the other four halves just above and underneath the tan stripe pattered strip.

Step 4: Using the inside of the smallest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut a circle with the tan patterned paper. Punch a medallion with map patterned paper and adhere it on top of the circle. Mount it on the tan stripe patterned strip with Foam Squares. Add the “This is Why I Love You” sticker.
