Papertrey Ink - MIM # 175




I'm joining in at Papertrey Ink's MIM!

The challenge is to create shaped borders using non-border dies. Danielle has created such a beautiful card and makes this technique look like a piece of cake! For me, not so much.... figuring out which dies might work, keeping dies square, trying to stamp accurately once I'd spent a bit of time lining up the perfect cut, photographing a card with a trimmed away front, etc. Phew. Yes, definitely a fun and creative exercise!
