Punch 917

Simple Border and Negative Shapes

I tend to be a simple scrapper–clean lines and the less is more mentality. But I still like lots of contrast to make a large impact. Even a simple punched border can make that large impact if you use a strong contrast in color.  For this layout I used the Kreaxions 917 punch with the border guides and punched a simple heart border on red cardstock.

By layering the red punched background on white cardstock, there is a nice strong contrast between the red and white and you can see the punched border very clearly.

Then, I punched a border in a pink strip of cardstock (for a card I was working on) and used the punched out hearts, rather than just discarding them to decorate the title.

So there you have two simple ways to make a large impact on your projects using your Kreaxions punches! Have a great weekend!
