Cards and Border Punches

I recently discovered the fun of using border punches.  I had one from a few years ago when I first started scrapbooking, but I didn't "get it".  Then, with all the cards and layouts I've seen with their creators using border punches to adorn them, I decided to give them another try.  Now I'm hooked!  They seem to be one of the more popular tools lately and I'm enjoying them!  Here are a few cards I created using a border punch.

This is a 5 x 7 card, using DCWV Nana's Kids paper, Martha Stewart border punch, ribbon, "marquee" cut 3 times, layers in green and pink, with MOM cut out of the top layer.

Core'dinations Chocolate Box paper really made this card, embossed with the Argyle Cuttlebug folder and sanded to highlight the design.  Pink DCWV adhesive backed cardstock was embossed and trimmed with the Fiskars border punch.  The marquee layers were left blank to make the card ready for any occasion.

Another card made using the Core'dinations Chocolate Box paper, embossed with the Argyle Cuttlebug folder.  Martha Stewart border punch on both sides of pink cardstock.  Scalloped ovals cut using the Gazelle, Happy Mother's Day was cut using the Wild Card cartridge and Cricut Expression.  Brown and pink ribbon complete the look.

One more card, using the Martha Stewart border punch, scalloped circle cut with the Gazelle.

That's all for today...I'll post more cards soon.  Thanks for looking!

Koala-t hugs,
