French Manor Border Fun!



A friend of mine recently purchased some Martha Stewart punches from HSN and showed me how to punch both sides of a strip of paper to make a really cool border.  She had a half of a daisy that made an adorable daisy border. 

 Today I was playing with my Gypsy and French Manor, and I found a border that can do the same thing! 

Select the border function key on French Manor and select the lacy scallop.  Put two of the images on the mat together and size.

  **Hint ~ when sizing multiple images or layers of images, put them all on the mat together so they are grouped and then size.

  I left mine at 1".  Ungroup and flip one of the borders.  Position it just below the first border and lining up the x coordinate ~ make it the same number for both pieces.

Move the bottom scallop up until it overlaps the top one just a bit.  Then group and weld together.  Below is a close up.

Here is the test cut.  There was one small piece that did not cut all the way and I did not want to tear this delicate cut ~ so I left it.

Wouldn't this be fun as a 11 1/2 inch border?!?

That is very pretty Lori! Unfortunately I do not have that cartridge. I need to sit down and explore some of the borders on the cartridges I do have.

We can make our own borders too if we have DS or the G. All we need is to weld plus maybe get a bit fancy. :) pssss...That doesn't keep me away from buying them tough :D

great job you did there Lori...as always.
