Make It Monday #175: Creative Card Borders Using Non-Border Dies ~ Card 2


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and a creative border created with non-border dies..

Oh Yeah!!!
Leave it Be!!!

I am officially as obsessed with this technique as I was with debossed images form Dawn!!!

And I just knew Leave it Be would be amazing.
I was not disappointed.

 I used this color combo when I made the 3000 cards (not really!) for the debossed MIM. I liked it then and I still do!

I want to do one in more traditional fall colors, too.

I did practice the spacing on a scratch paper but had less trouble remembering which side I was cutting.

I also chose to put a solid color on the inside edge. I like to keep the inside of my card white or in this case, cream.

I LOVE Leave it Be. I am so happy it worked so well on this card.

Thank you for looking at my blog!
