  1. I’m thinking there’s a step missing in the “Love These Moments” border, because it looks like the Flourish Vine Border Maker Cartridge was used with a white paper on top of the maroon tiled mosaic designer paper. (Step 3)

  2. I think the idea is to punch both long edges of a 4 inch wide strip of 12″ paper that is gray on one side and maroon on the other. Then score each long edge at 1 inch, then fold them INWARD so the punched edges meet in the middle. The gray paper shows on top and the maroon paper under the punched edges. Hope that helps! I can’t wait to try this!
