Borderabilities® Idea

Hello friends

Yesterday's blog post was late going up - 
I scheduled it for 5.30 teatime instead of morning!

Today's post - hopefully on time(!) is a different shaped card with an idea of 
how to use your Borderabilities -
I've featured Curved Borders Two but the same idea can be used with 
most of the Borderabilities dies.
The aperture is cut with Delightful Circles and the very
pretty paper used is Graphic 45 - Bird Song.
Oh look - a twine and tag!  Seems this is quite a frequent feature on my projects.
A card that would work landscape as well as portrait and if you sealed 
the sides, omitted the aperture it would make a nice money gift wallet/envelope.

I heard on the news that we are set for a very mild Autumn, in fact 13 weeks
of pleasant weather - I've hastily put away my scarf knitting!  

Take care friends - back tomorrow.

Morning Christine, I read your blog whilst I'm drinking my first coffee, it eases me into the day. A great surprise this morning that I had two posts to read! I really must try the card idea. Your kittens look contented......doing what cats do. Have a great Thursday. Lynn xx

Good morning Christine
I always read your blog whilst having my breakfast while the house is quiet but yesterday I read it whilst watching Bake off - a change is as good as a rest so they say.
The card today is great - I have some edging dies and must give this idea a go. The paper is lovely.
Enjoy your day

Hi. Christine
I love your card today. The shaped edges add a really nice effect and set it off. It certainly makes the card very different!
Another great idea, thank you - especially as I have two of these sets of dies. I will give it a go later.
Have a good day.

Hi Christine. What a gorgeous card. I love it. I have this set of border dies on my wish list and seeing this card makes me wish I could get them NOW! The Bird Song paper is beautiful too. Thanks for such a pretty card and great idea.
I hope the weather forecast is right, the longer the warm weather lasts the better as far as I an concerned. Take care.

Lesley Thomas said...

Wow, I love the card, but love the news of 13 weeks of settled weather even better Christine. I'm on the NW of Ireland, and somehow I don't think your weather will come this way. (be nice if it did though).
