Border edged cards

This is a really large card post!  My sister Pat * Hi Pat!* asked me to post these cards.  I made them a while back, before we got our Canon Rebel camera so the pictures are not so good.  But, you can get the idea of the cards.  They are all 4 1/4x5 1/2 white cardstock base.  After the cardstock is folded in half I trim 1 1/4 inch of of the top right side.  This allows me to add the border.  Most of the cards use the scallop border from the Cricket Solutions cartridge, Easter.  I cut the borders at 5 1/2.  The left side is adhered to the back side of the front of the card.  All of the cards have 2 mats that are 3 3/4 square and adhered together.  Most of them have had the solid cardstock embossed with Spots and Dots Cuttlebug folder.  Some of them have ribbon adhered at the seam and some have the Rickrack border on the Easter cartridge placed there as well.  A 1 1/2x5 1/4" strip of coordinating cardstock or paper was adhered to the right edge of the back of the card, so when the card is shut the paper shows through the border.  3 of the cards have a shabby flower on them.  3 sizes of a flower from Cricut George & Basic Shapes were cut from 3 colors of cardstock.  The flowers were sprayed with Gold Glimmer Mist, scrunched up, dried and adhered in the center with jeweled brads.  The blue cards with the bird were cut with Stamping solutions cartridge.  The card with the red flower border also used a cut from Stamping solutions cartridge.  The second to last card has a flower made with the Hero Arts large flower stamp.  The last card has an egg that was cut with the Cricut Easter solutions cartridge. 
There are a lot of cards and a lot of information here.  Ask if you have any questions
Thank you for looking at my blog!
