I tend to like to use all kinds of accents and embellishments when I create a card but I challenged myself to follow the thought of "less is more" for my project I wanted to share today.
I like to make cards to send to friends from photos that I have taken. This photo of the red poppies was taken in Jacksonville, Oregon last spring. I makes for a simple, yet elegant card. I started playing with my 922 Fountain 4-in-1 punch and came up with a very simple little accent.
Here is a close-up of the little strip of a lacey, punched border.
This photo gives you can idea of what I did. I punched one entire border on a piece of cardstock making sure each new punch was close to the last one. Experimenting lets you find the proper placement of each punch. Once I had my piece all punched, I cut right through the border, near the bottom of the little fountain part of the design. The piece this is left over can also be used.
