Making your own "paper lace" borders for cards -- click here for cut file

These are all about 5.5" long, just cut or adjust to the size you need. I made these because I wanted various paper borders to put on my cards without having to fork out the money to buy the paper lace ribbon I like so much.

There's also a page in this file that has layering pieces for an A2 card. On that screen shot, the image on the left with the scallops & dots is meant to go on top of the card itself, and each size is meant to go on top of the one just larger than it. I have included an example at the bottom of an unfinished card that I used those layering pieces on. That card was made of the new Bazzill Swiss Dot cardstock--LOVE IT!!

NOTE: The Bazzill paper pack I got was from HSN--you get two each of 23 colors. All but two colors come in monochromatic sets of three (those other two are black and white, and you also get two sheets each of those two colors). It's a good deal if you like variety & want to see all the colors. Click HERE to check it out on HSN. You can also buy individual monochromatic packs on HSN and I think they still have single color packs in this texture, just maybe not on HSN.

That information has been moved to the Imagine That Plus site so that this site will load faster (that one doesn't have as much, and everything is pretty much in posts & not at the bottom of every page so it loads at a pretty good rate).
