Border dies or border punches

Morning and hello! I am back again with a new dt-project for my beloved Paper Shelter. Wednesdays comes around qickly these days and I am having a blast making Christmas cards. Better role with it as long as it lasts. LoL

This week our theme is set to border punches or border dies. Either one or both is fine with us. Most of us have tons of these laying around, but are we really making the work with us? I for sure doesn't do it enough. So this time I really had to pull them out.

I have used the first Christmas digi of the year for this card. It's called Santas helper and I have coloured with my Letraset/Winsor and Newton markers. I have also used a white gel pen for some details and covering up. Too heavy on hand with my markers and making it bleed a bit even if I use good paper to colour on.

I have used a paper pad from Glitz that has nothing to do with Christmas at all. Thought it would be fun to try something different and since my main colours are red and grey on this card, I thought why not go black and white with the DP's? Became kind of fun and I like it even if it's a little busy in it's patterns. The paper pad is called "black and white".

To decorate have I used some pebbles letter stickers and spelled out Merry Christmas in Swedish. Some twine for texture and a snow flake charm as I have around 200 of them or so. Kind of need to use them up, don't I? The punch I have used is one of my very first ones. It's from Fiskars and I think it's called lace something somehing. I have also used a border die from DooHickey, Magnolia. I have only use a tiny bit of it and it's not so long from the start either. Thought it would be cute to add it as an extra detail even if it's hardly visable.

When you play with us over at The Paper Shelter you always have a chance of winning a gift voucher worth $30, but that is only if you use one of our digis. Playing with another brand gives you the chance to win three digis of your choice. Nice isn't it?

Well, take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs
