Dreaming Border

Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 2-1/4″ strip of tropical floral designer paper for the base. Cut an 11-1/2″ x 1-3/4″ strip of navy tonal paper and align and adhere it to the middle of the base. Cut an 11-1/4″ x 1-1/2″ strip of tan canvas designer paper and mount on top.

Step 2: Using the Mirrored Triangles Border Maker Cartridge, punch one border from each olive, dark teal stripe and terra cotta papers. Using just the punched out pieces of the dark teal border (save the actual border for one of the following borders), adhere them behind the terra cotta border so the dark teal shows through the triangle cutouts. Trim off the middle bar section of the olive border so just the two zigzag sections remain. Attach each to the top and bottom of the terra cotta border, trimming as necessary, and mount on the border.

Step 3: Add embellishments and stickers, popping some up with Foam Squares for added dimension.

Vacation Vibes Border

Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 2-3/4″ strip of mint stripe tonal paper for the base. Cut a 12″ x 1-1/2″ strip of ferns designer paper and adhere to the top section of the base.

Step 2: Punch three borders using the Mirrored Triangles Border Maker Cartridge from dark teal stripe and mustard tonal paper. Tuck one behind the base at the top so just the tips of the triangles show. With the other two, fold the top triangle section down over the lower section. Overlap and adhere each to the lower half of the base.

Step 3: Place a border sticker between the mirrored triangles borders and ferns strip. Add stickers and embellishments, popping some up with Foam Squares for added dimension.

Floral Zigzag Border

Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 2-3/4″ strip of dark teal dotted designer paper for the base. Using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Deckle Blade, cut a 12″ x 2-1/2″ strip of salmon pink stripe tonal paper and adhere on the base. With the 12-inch Trimmer with the Straight Blade, cut a 12″ x 2″ strip of terra cotta chevron designer paper and mount on top.

Step 2: Cut a 12″ x 2-1/4″ strip of white with mustard ovals tonal paper. Punch one border using the Mirrored Triangles Border Maker Cartridge with each mint, mustard and dark teal dotted papers. Adhere the three borders side by side and nestled together on the strip.

Step 3: Using the photos below as a guide, align the strip on the trimmer using the 45-degree line and cut off one corner. Rotate and align the straight edge at 2″ and cut at the same angle. Flip the strip to the back side and repeat.

Step 4: Add stickers and embellishments, cutting one floral embellishment in half before placing on the border as shown. Pop small stickers up with Foam Squares for added dimension.

I Think of You and Smile Card

Step 1: Create the card base. Cut an 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of White Solid Cardstock. Using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Scoring Blade, score along the long edge at 4-1/4″ and fold in half. Or use a card base from the Blank Card Kit.

Step 2: Cut a tan canvas mat to measure 5-1/4″ x 4″. Cut a 1-1/2″ x 4″ strip of salmon pink stripe tonal paper and adhere it to the tan canvas piece, about 1/2″ from the left edge.

Step 3: Punch a border using the Mirrored Triangles Border Maker Cartridge from each mint, navy and terra cotta mandala tonal papers. Adhere side by side and nestled together along the salmon pink strip as shown. Trim edges as needed and adhere the tan canvas mat to the front of the card.

Step 4: Add embellishments and stickers.
