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!!!

On the left hand card, I added a thin yellow border to the right hand side of the trimmed floral image which has a gold border. I attached the border to the back of the image using double sided tape and then glued the whole element to a pink card front. I added a laser printed vellum greeting which I trimmed to size and attached with double sided tape just behind the words.
The right hand side features an element cut from a large card. It was not quite wide enough for an A2 but lower on the card was this little piece of measuring tape which was a perfect accent which I adhered to the right hand side by taping them together on the back using regular tape. That was perfect!! I wanted to add a bit of texture so I cut slits just above and below the first D and inserted vintage seam binding gluing the ends to the back of the layer. I added the gold round paper clip and I was done!! Another card for my stash!! Therese
