Effortless Elegance with Border Punched Style

Hi there! Angela Fehr here with some fun projects using Kreaxions punch #304. I just love how intricate and elegant this punch is, and the style fit perfectly for this layout of my children at the London Bridge in Lake Havasu, Arizona. The classic lines of the bridge were really set off by the border I punched and set along the edge of the page.

London BridgeI also used the star template to punch two doily shapes, which I layered over top of each other and used to accent a smaller photo.

So pretty & lacy looking!

I love layering borders to create beautiful cards. On this card I had the brilliant idea to fold the punched border, so as to show off both sides of my patterned paper.

I punched out the strip using the A plate as a guide. The upper edge that you see would normally be discarded, but I simply flipped it over and glued it to the opposite edge of my punched border.
