1. I cut a bigger card than I would have because punching the border causes a loss of about 1/4" on length and a little less on the width after punching the border. I cut a 5.5"x11" piece of paper. I have 5.5 square envelopes, and needed a little bit smaller card.
3. It was folded so the one punched edge is even with the back right side of the card.
4. I turned the punch to do the sides, starting to create the rounded corner first. I've tried to show that below. If you click on the image below you can see that I've made the second side transparent so you can see what you will be looking at from the back of the punch when you do the left side. Of course you have to imagine the card is everything to your right. If this is confusing for you try either of these two Border Punch Video 1 or this Border Punch Video 2 that might help.
5. For the bottom half I used a piece of double sided sticky sheet half the size of the Millstone, and with tan colored mesh on top.
6. I applied a light blue ribbon from Michael's $1 bin as a seam between the top and the bottom.
7. I applied USArt Quest Mica D'Lites Gold over that for the sticky areas not covered by the mesh.

1. The largest Spellbinders Labels One die was used with Neenah Classic Laid Solar White cardstock in my Cuttlebug.
2. I didn't have any scape stamps for the images and could never make up my mind on which ones to get, so I used Linda's card as a guide and did the rest with Twinkling H2O's and a Niji waterbrush. I also used a little bit of the Gold mica and some Baby Pink Flower Soft.
3. Anna Griffin Cream Designer Paper was used for the outside frame. I put it through the Cuttlebug to emboss only and then trimmed around the double embossed edge.
1. Stamped with Brilliance Galaxy Gold on Neenah Solar White cardstock and heat set to dry ink.
2. Painted with Twinkling H2O's.
3. Ivory Flower Soft applied to the centers and then a little Twinkling H2O Yellow Drop and a tad of Rangers Stickles Yellow.
4. When dry the images were cut out.
5. The flowers and leaves were mounted with glue and 3D Glue Dots.
6. A light blue ribbon was tied around the flowers.
7. The Sand Dollar is from Fanciful Inc. online.
The colors are really much softer in real life, but this is how the camera saw it to day! Thanks for stopping by 'the blog' to look and share. Hope to be back soon!
