Ruffled Borders


My card today is called "ruffled borders" and it was done with a Martha Stewart heart border punch. I used snippets of black, red and pink to create the borders, and added some gingham ribbon to tie them all up. The sentiment is Hero Arts, and I dotted the "i's" with 2 negative punched hearts. Quick, easy and a fun way to show someone you're thinking of them.

This is heading over to the Snippets Playground #145 since it was made with left over strips of cardstock.

Wishing you all a bright and wonderful day! I'm off to paint a room!

That's such a pretty, ruffled border, Carol. And, I love the way you dotted your "i's" with the hearts....very sweet.

Painting.....when you finish, come to my house. There's a lot of painting I want done. :-)

Thanks for sharing this fun way to use that punch, Carol! I tend to forget my punches in their drawer because I just don't know what to do with them. Great idea, and such a sweet card to let someone know you're thinking of them.

Super card Carol - and a clever touch to use two of the little punched out hearts as well :)
