Punch a border using the Fringe Border Punch with blush pink diamonds paper. Trim to measure 12″ x 2-3/4″ and punch the other side. Mount this piece on top of the base.

Step 2: Cut a 12″ x 1-12″ strip of lace veil paper and mount on the border. Using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Victorian Blade, cut a 12″ x 1″ strip of white vintage florals paper. Adhere to the lace veil strip. Top with a “You are my today…” border sticker.

Step 3: Add foiled flower embellishments with Foam Squares.

Layered Fringe Border

Step 1: Punch a border using the Fringe Border Punch with terracotta notebook paper. Trim to measure 12″ x 3″ to create the base. Punch another fringe border with terracotta notebook paper, but begin punching at a slightly different spot than before (about 1/16″). Trim to measure 12″ x 2-1/2″ and adhere on top of the base. Punch a third fringe border with navy ovals stripes paper. Trim to measure 12″ x 2-1/4″ and adhere on top.

All My Love Card

Step 1: Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of White Solid Cardstock. With the 12-inch Trimmer and Scoring Blade, score and fold in half to create a card.

Step 2: Cut a 5-1/4: x 4″ piece of blush pink diamonds paper. Punch one long edge using the Fringe Border Punch. Adhere to the card.

Step 3: Cut a 5-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ piece of baby’s breath paper. Punch one long edge using the Fringe Border Punch and adhere on top of the blush pink diamonds piece.

Step 4: Cut a 5-1/4″ piece of roses border sticker and adhere along the fringe. Add the “All my love” sticker with Foam Squares and top with rhinestones.

Step 5: Create a quilled flower:

  • Punch a border using the Fringe Border Punch with terracotta red 1 Corinthians lettering. Trim to measure 12″ x 1-1/4″. Punch a border using the Fringe Border Punch with baby’s breath paper. Trim to measure 12″ x 1-1/4″ and then cut off all but 1/2″ of the fringe. Cut a 12″ x 1/8″ strip of baby’s breath paper.
  • Line the strips up end to end with the terracotta red 1 Corinthians lettering border on the left, then the baby’s breath border and then narrow strip. Apply a dab of Precision Point Adhesive Pen to connect the three.
  • Using an embroidery needle or a pointed tool, roll up the long strip you’ve created, beginning with the narrow strip, then the blue floral and finally the rust strip. Apply a dab from the Precision Point Adhesive to the end to secure the roll.
  • Holding the middle of the roll between your fingers, press the fringe down and out to create petals.

Step 6: Mount the quilled flower to the card using a large Foam Square. Add a gemstone in the middle.
