Stamp Simply #129 - March 5th - Border Punches
Today, Sharon let Tammy issue this week's challenge. She gave us a fun one... to use a Border Punch. We have all been using the FAB Martha Punches and Spellbinder's Edge Borders on our cards more and more... so this should be an easy one to play along with!

I have been working on some samples for Outline's new catalog. We'll see if this one makes the cut. This is the original image below.
You can see I embossed it several times in silver and then cut it up rearranging it with layers, also splitting the corners of the square and stretching to the outside frame. I used a Martha Border punch to frame my diamond panel. Also using the corner punch to add a little decoration to the top and bottom of the sentiment square. Martha hit a home run with these punches. By far the easiest border punches to work with.
I took an up close and to the side picture, you can see I curved the sentiment panel, using 3D Silicone glue to help adhere it so that it would keep the curve . The little funky embellishment was a find in the wedding section at Michael's. There is foam tape in between many of the layers adding some depth. The crystals are the good ones....S
