Using Border Punches

I have seen a lot of cards online using border punches as backgrounds to cards, and really like the look, so here is my take on the idea. The punch is by Martha Stewart and the flower stamp is by Heartfelt Creations. I put the borders onto a square of white card which was popped on for dimension. The flower was stamped twice, once onto green cardstock, and again, twice, on white. The white flowers were cut out and coloured with Promarkers, and the middle flower was cut out again, and more foam pads used, so it all looks very textured and dimensional   


  1. Absoluetly beautiful! Love that punch and those flowers are perfection.
