Stella's Border

Hi there guys and welcome back!  The last post of our first day is dedicated to Stella's Border.  Isn't she pretty when used repeatedly across your card in a background style?  Even with an aperture cut from the centre, you can still see how beautifully she will work for so many of your cards and other crafty projects.  The matching borer to the Stella die has the same gorgeous undulating swirls going the full length.  You can easily nip them apart to use with your floral elements too.  If you like the look of this one, just leave a comment on this post and let me know.  We will begin day number two at our usual 6am time.  I would love it if you are able to join me back here then!  all for now, Sue x

Hello Sue. I have to agree with you that this die looks absolutely stunning when laid side by side to create a background and I am sure she looks beautiful on her own too as a border.
