Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Just for You

Hi Everybody,

Border dies are always a useful addition to any of your projects.

They can be used to frame the focal point, edge any of the shapes you want to use or as I have done here to add a surround to a separate panel that is raised on your card.

For this one I have used the Lace Edge  and cut my card in lilac.

The flower and leaves are from the Layered Flowers stamps and die set and I used the flower shaper to curl the petals 

The pearl flourish in the background is also from Card Making Magic and adds the finishing touch to the design.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
