Extended Border Card

Hi bloggers!  Did you know that you can easily extend borders to create longer areas if needed for your card designs?  This video shows you how easy it is to do.

The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Loyal Commenters,

This is the card I won! When I showed my friend Donna at work, she observed that the design had been cut out and put back in. I hadn't noticed that. I started to explain that you had cut the design into the card, but she showed me you had cut the design out and put it back in. She was impressed that you had thought of that. I was impressed that she had spotted your technique. And today we get a video showing she was right! Thanks for the tip, for the card and for the video!

Plus another lesson in extending a border. The key seems to be getting the die seated perfectly.

Another good thing about the video is that the color shows up. The stills seem grey, but your lovely wisteria comes through in the video.

Healing to all in need of heaps and loads or just a little. Emotional healing too, same way. And Laine, if I were you, I'd look for a cat harness fitted with little miniature sleigh bells everywhere.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. It is really good to know that border dies can be extended so they are as good for larger cards as for smaller ones. This also applies to the Peony Diamond which works well on small cards and can also be used on larger ones as you have shown here. Love the colour choice today.

Hello Sue,
I thought I'd made a mistake thinking I'd seen this card recently until Donita mentioned it was the one she had won!
It's a beautiful card and we are fortunate to see the video giving us all the " know how" and hints and tips! The Get Well message could be for so many on the Blog but maybe we'd suggest Pam today!!
Thank you for a great video and a lovely card!
Elaine - how nice of Andrew to send his good wishes to Pam! That made me smile today.
Pam - if you look in - lots of love coming your way from so many people! No more than you deserve as you have been so thoughtful and caring . Sending hugs!
I've been on a cleaning spree today! I'm rather tired now! It's a good feeling though!
Take care Everyone - I'm ignoring the remark from a certain acquaintance of mine!! She is a shocker!
Love to all - even Maureen! - Myra ( Friend of Maureen!,). Xxx. In spite of everything!
