Make Your Own Stencil with the Bubbles on the Border Die!

Hi, everyone! 

Bev here with a brand new card making tutorial for you! Today, I'm going to show you how to make a stencil with the Bubbles on the Border crafting die to create one really cute card! 

This technique is easy and fun. You are going to love it. Let's get started! 

Bubble Border tutorial by Technique Tuesday

First, cut out the mask or stencil with the Bubbles on the Border crafting die. I used plain cardstock. (If you want to make more than one card, consider using stencil material instead.) Make as many die cuts as you want to create an interesting pattern for your stencil.

Also I put together a quick video showing this technique for you!
