To create these borders and layout you will need:

Alpine Mountains ‘Home Sweet Home’ Border

Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 3-1/4″ strip of black plaid paper for the base. Cut a 12″ x 2-3/4″ strip of chevron paper and adhere to the base. Cut a 12″ x 2-1/2″ strip of shiplap paper and mount on top.

Step 2: Punch a border using the Alpine Mountains Border Punch with green leaves paper. Trim to measure 12″ x 2-1/8″. Punch another border with brushed metal paper, but begin punching in the middle of the punch rather than where the marks are. Trim to measure 12″ x 1-1/2″. Layer the green leaves over the brushed metal and adhere to the border.

Step 3: Cut a 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ piece of black plaid paper. Mount the “Home sweet home” embellishment on top using Foam Squares. Adhere it along with a branch embellishment to the border.

Wheatfield ‘What a Wonderful Life’ Border

Step 1: Using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Scallop Blade, cut a 12″ x 3″ strip of green leaves paper for the base. With the 12-inch Trimmer and the Straight Blade, cut a 12″ x 1-3/4″ strip of shiplap paper and adhere to the top of the base. Cut a 12″ x 1″ strip of teal tile paper and adhere it to the bottom of the base.

Step 2: Punch a border using the Wheatfield Border Punch with brown leather paper. Trim to measure 12″ x 1-1/2″ and adhere on top of the shiplap strip. Place a wood bead border sticker along the seam.

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

Step 1: Punch a border with the Alpine Mountains Border Punch with black plaid paper. Trim to 12″ x 3-1/4″ to create the base.

Step 2: Punch a border with the Wheatfield Border Punch with reclaimed wood paper. Trim to 12″ x 2-1/2″ and adhere to the base. Punch a border with the Wheatfield Border Punch with green leaves paper (punching the reverse side). Trim to 12″ x 1-3/4″ and adhere on top of the reclaimed wood border.

Step 3: Using the outside of the small Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut a half circle with light plaid paper. Using the Green Blade, cut a half circle with reclaimed wood paper. Layer and adhere in the middle of the border. Place the “Road trip” title on top.

Step 4: Adhere the anemones and greenery border sticker on the seam using Foam Squares.
