DCM – On the Edge

The Daring Cardmakers are living life right ‘On The Edge’ this week.

We'd love to see you making use of all sorts of border treatments;
scallops, trims, pleats, or anything else which makes the edges of your

papers and cards look special.
You could use Border Punches, Die Cutters, Lace,

Fancy Trims and that's just for starters.
Let your imagination live right on the edge this week –

Or maybe even go right over the edge!

Border Punches do seem to be the ‘tool of the moment’ for us crafters, me included and I’m gathering a nice little collection together without even realizing it…… does that happen!

Anyway I’ve gone with my favourite punch at the moment and that’s my new Martha Stewart ‘Doily Lace Punch.

Here’s my effort:-

A6 Card Blank – Craft Creations (Embossed Hammer)
Patterned Papers – My Minds Eye (Wild Asparagus)
Plain Card – DCWV (Pastels Stack)
Die Cuts - My Minds Eye (Wild Asparagus)
Inks –Ranger Distress Ink (Worn Lipstick)
Paper Punches – Mather Stewart (Doily Lace Border Punch)

Other Bits
Twill Ribbon
Embroidery Thread
Gold Gel Pen
Happy Birthday Rub-On
