Wild and Free Tribal Borders Card

The die set has two designs of borders, I went with this geometric one. Cut/embossed with navy blue card and then sliced the die cut vertically in half.

I then selected a strip of patterned paper, widened my border pieces and inserted the strip down the middle.

This created a bold feature for my card front, matted onto ivory and a navy blue card base.

The next step was to add a flower and stamped sentiment.  The widening of border die cuts is a handy technique that you can apply to many Spellbinders border dies.

Thank you for joining me and feel free to see more Spellbinders inspiration on my blog Creativity Continues.
