Fancy Borders

Good morning and I'm here with another DT project for International Art & Soul challenge #3 and we are asking you to use fancy borders.  IA&S is  a Just For Fun challenge but we have some lovely banners for the winners so I do hope you will pop over to to the blog and see what my teamies have made for this challenge.  Maybe you will be inspired to join in.

Please scroll down to see my Christmas Card Club entry

Instead of a card I actually made a box of cards as a gift.  The inspiration for the box was seeing a pack of cards in the shop at a National Trust property.  I thought I'm sure I can make something similar, and this is what I came up with.  I used a mini brad as the closure.

My Project

white pearlescent card
pink pearlescent card
5 " square scalloped cards
Spellbinders e/f - Dainty Dots
Spellbinders - A2 Bracket Borders One
Britannia - small and medium rose
Britannia - fern wreath strip
pearls from stash

Well that's it from me today. Have a good day and enjoy what's left of the weekend.

Oh WOW Christine, what a truly fabulous gift you have made, I just love this creation and can feel all your texturising form here hahahaha. A great way to demonstrate the use of fancy borders, not only on your box but with each scalloped edge card too :) :) :) Big hugs, Jane xxxx
