CCEE Stampers-Border Punches


I love this sentiment and it is a set from my sister, TPC Studio Card Crafting Happy Birthday. She also gave me the Martha Stewart Crafts stamp around the page set called Flourishes and Leaves. What a sis!!!  I didn't stamp around the page but it makes a beautiful card when you  do and I'll have to try it soon.

The CCEE Stampers challenge this week is to use two border punches on your card. I used a Morocco Lace border punch from EK Success to make the bottom border. I'm using a tutorial from
Becca Feeken at Amazing Paper Grace. The other is a border punch and corner punch that makes a
punch around the page. It is a Martha Stewart eyelet lace.

Hope you'll join the challenge this week. Check out the team's cards for some inspiration, make your own and upload with the inlinkz tool. We would love to see them.

Recipe:
Paper-PTI white cs, Core-dinations Serene cs, unknown dp
Ink: Tim Holtz Distressed Inks/Peeled Paint
Accessories-flowers from Michaels Arts and Crafts

Love that punched border-very nice. Thanks for sharing

Oh, I love the way you've let the border go over the edge of the card. I'd find it hard to do myself, but I think it looks just fabulous. It really enhances the lacy feel.

Such a pretty card Benz! The matting of the two punched layers is brilliant and gorgeous! The addition of the little purple roses is the perfect finishing touch!!
