Papertrey MIM #48: Creating Backgrounds with Border Dies

Yikes! It's been sooooo long since my last post....... guess that I just need to jump right back in ASAP!

The PTI challenge is to use border dies as a background and there are so many creative options. I took my cue from Amber Draigre's post on Ella Publishing and loved the idea of the monogram cards, which make terrific little gifts for family and friends.

I used the negative portion of the PTI Victorian Lace border die and the "m" die cut from Block Alphabet (in addtion to a few Spellbinder dies and lots of PTI card stock).

Thanks for taking a peek at my long overdue creations!


  1. Wow! I LOVE what you've done with the border die, and the bright colors are fantastic!

  2. This is so eye catching. Very clever and pretty.

  3. Really love this bold card, Michelle!

  4. So striking, I love the vibrant colours.

  5. Very creative to use the negative with this challenge. Love the colors!
