How to Use the Border Dies for Making Cards

Hi, everyone! 

Teri here today, and I've got a quick cardmaking tutorial for you!

I'm going to show you how to use Technique Tuesday's border dies: Cascading Hearts Border, Stars on the Border and Tulip on the Border.

These three dies were created with cardmakers in mind. With them, you can take a card and quickly cut a border out the side of it.

Here's how they work.

Start by cutting an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock. Fold it in half. This will serve as your card.


Open the card up and set a border die cutting side down along the side. Use removable sticky tape (or Washi tape) to hold the die in place.


Run the card through your manual die-cutting machine. You'll end up with something like this. (By the way, if you have a hard time getting the pieces to punch through your card, consider using a metal shim with it.) 


Use your border card like it is or doctor it up!

Have you tried using these border dies on your cards? We'd love to see your projects. Share them with us on Facebook and Instagram. Be sure to use the #TechniqueTuesday hashtag.
