Sweater Weather Border
Step 1: To make the base, punch a border with the Dazzle Border Punch and purple patterned paper. Trim the other side at 2-3/4″ using the 12-inch Trimmer and the Scallop Blade.
Step 2: With the 12-inch Trimmer and the Straight Blade, cut a 1-5/8″ x 12″ strip of light blue patterned paper. Adhere this to the base, just below the scalloped edge. With the 12-inch Trimmer and the Scallop Blade, cut a 1-3/8″ x 12″ strip of lavender striped patterned paper and adhere it on top of the border.
Step 3: Adhere the vine laser cut border on top. Add the vine border sticker, popping it up with Foam Squares.
Step 4: Add the snowflake, vine, branch and “Sweater Weather” stickers.
Super Dazzle Border
Step 1: Cut five stripes of various patterned papers to measure 2-3/8″ wide. Trim one to measure 11-1/4″ long, one to measure 9-1/4″ long, one to measure 7-1/4″ long, one to measure 5-1/4″ long and one to measure 3-1/4″ long. Punch both short ends of each strip with the Dazzle Border Punch. Beginning with the longest strip, layer the strips, ending with the shortest one in the middle.
Step 2: Cut a 2-3/4″ x 12″ strip of purple patterned paper for the base.
Step 3: Using the inside of the medium Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Blue Blade, cut a circle with purple patterned paper. Top it with a snowflake sticker and adhere it to the middle of the border.
Step 4: Add small snowflake stickers to the corners as shown.
Step 1: Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of White Cardstock and fold it in half to make a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ card. Optionally, use a card from the Blank Card Kit.
Step 2: Cut a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of navy patterned paper and adhere it to the front of the card.
Step 3: Place the bottom front edge of the card in the middle of the Dazzle Border Punch. Punch once, then move the card both left and right, align and punch again, so that the bottom front of the card is scalloped.
Step 4: Cut a 5-1/2″ x 1-3/4″ piece of purple patterned paper. Following the instructions above, punch with the Dazzle Border Punch. Adhere it to the card so just the bottom of the navy patterned scallops are visible.
Step 5: Top it with striped and vine border stickers and a snowflake popped up with a Foam Square.
Step 6: Cut a 5-1/2″ x 1-1/4″ strip of lavender stripe patterned paper and adhere it to the bottom of the inside of the card.
