Die cut concertina border on an embossed card

On one of my groups someone posted a video link to how to make these little concertina borders using paper and a die!!  Check out the video on the Sizzix site here.  You fold the paper just short of the width of the die then cut it!  Magically you have a whole row of flowers!!  On the video they used a heart but the possibilities are endless!!!  I used the smallest flower on one of my large Sizzix dies to make this border from hand painted decorative paper.  Love how it worked out!!  I found the two backgrounds in my stash - they are watercoloured strips which at the time was a technique that I was experimenting with which had not turned out the way I expected.  They were perfect for my new flower border!!  I embossed the backgrounds, trimmed and glued my border over the watercoloured section and then glued this element to my card fronts (one yellow, the other pink).  I added punchies to the center of the flowers and a little punchie greeting and I was done!!  Very happy with these! They are off to a couple of people who are facing challenges right now!!!
