MIM #175 Creative Card Borders


Danielle's video shows us how to create a border with non-border dies.
Well, I had an idea to use the Rustic Wreath to create my border,
but it took most of the afternoon to get what I wanted,
but I didn't.
Sometimes things are just OK, and I'll post it anyway,
but I need to try this again (need to!).

  4. I just posted a card and said I wanted to do a redo of mine as well. I cannot believe you used the wreath , that was my first choice, and it's sitting on my desk. You would have thought I copied you.
    Nancy this is beautiful and I love it! It perfect just the way it is. I still cannot believe you chose the wreath!

  8. So wonderful! I think your card is perfect. The addition of the burlap is such a nice added detail. I can't imagine what you'd want to change about it.

  9. Dang it Nancy! I had the Rustic Wreath sitting out on my desk just like Marybeth did! But I never would have thought to use it to make a beachy card and I just LOVE how yours turned out...I wouldn't change a thing on it! And I do have a few other dies sitting out as well, so just need to make the time and get to it! Great, great card though, and I may definitely have to CASE it for an upcoming birthday...thanks for the inspiration!! :0)
