Create a pretty card by stamping three flowers. Color them in with markers. Add some extra details to your flowers by using dark colors to add dots and lines to them! Finish your card with a sentiment for the special lady you intend on giving it to.

Create a card that reflects your Mom or Grandmother's interests. Does she love to garden? Create a card with flowers on it. Does she love to sew? Add some stitches with your sewing machine.

Is your mom not a fan of flowers? Consider making a card with hearts and butterflies on it instead!

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.

Borders-Step-1-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

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.

Borders-Step-2-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

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.) 

Borders-Step-3-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

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

Without-You-Hearts-Card-Teri-A-Technique-TuesdayConsider placing patterned paper or cardstock strips behind the border's open spaces. Another idea? Apply ink behind them or add some embellishments. 

Very-Happy-Day-Stars-Card-Teri-A-Technique-TuesdayThe possibilities are endless! 

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.
