Step 3: Using the Damask Flourish Frame Punch, punch two borders from Black Shimmer Solid Cardstock. Cut the border at 1-1/2″ width. Cut a slit in between designs and bend to form a circular shape. Adhere to the backside of the jumbo circle piece.
Add the circle piece to the gold large dotted circles paper and trim along the edge. Adhere to a piece of black triangle lines tonal paper.
