Spellbinders has a collection of dies called Borderabilities Card Creator. They are sets of border dies that can add a variety of decorative edges. The card above show two dies to create the scalloped border across the bottom of the card. I fussy cut the bird and flowers from Tim Holtz idea-ology Wallflower collection (that’s also what decorates the card inside).
If you join me on the video below we’ll do a step-by-step on how to make the card above. Again using the Wallflower paper and fussy cutting the butterflies for the outside. These cards are all standard A2 size 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. The dies have little notches on the sides to help you line up the edge of your card. I used the Sizzix Magnetic Platform with my Sizzix Big Shot to hold the thin dies in place while cutting. The cards are resting in Joy!Crafts Elegant Card Stand.
This card uses a combination of the Spellbinders Borderabilities Curved Border dies, Spellbinders Die D-Lites Blooms Two dies to form the flower and fussy cut pieces from the Sizzix Floral Vine embossing folder. I lightly inked the raised edges of the embossing with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet.
The possibilities with these borders dies are only limited by your imagination. By combining two or more borders you’ll achieve a lacy yumminess to edge of your card bases. Try them out and see what combinations you like best. Be sure and check the store, there are many different border die sets to choose from.
Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
