Here we go with our second batch of Simplicity Border Punches!

Don’t forget to leave a comment each day for a chance to win the day’s three featured punches!

Simplicity Border Punch – Victorian Border

For this fun card, I cut a bunch of 1″ X 4″ strips from a 6X6 paper pad – insert the 1″ end into the front center of the punch to create the rounded edge, then cut into a petal by trimming from each of the corners of the punched edge to the center of the strip, creating a triangle (finished petals are approximately 1.75″).  I cut my first petal and used it as a template to create 11 more.  Align the petals to create a flower – add a flower embellishment to the center for a little dimension!

Simplicity Border Punch – Doily Border

These doily punches are quickly going to become some of my go-to punches, I just know it!  I used both the Doily Border, and the Doily Strip – again, loving how the Doily Strip makes cute banners and flags!

Simplicity Border Punch – Floral Strip

For this card, I used the strip punch, but didn’t punch completely to either edge – keeping the border intact.  I then used a 7/8″ circle punch to add monochromatic coral circles behind the punched strip.  I used one of the tiny daisy pieces under my sentiment – love how it tied things together!
