Vintage Christmas

Hello & happy Saturday!!

I had an idea to use the new Holly Border die
and have it wrap around the spine of my pretty!

I also have a love for all things vintage so when I found this pattern paper from Graphic 45, mixed with the black cardstock from Core'dinations were the perfect mix with the Holly Border.

To create the border I cut a strip of the cardstock about 4" and folded it in half.  Next placed the die on the cardstock along the folded edge, leaving part of the die hanging over the edge.  

For the front boarder I lightly sanded the Core'dinations cardstock to
bring out some of the lighter core color.

Here is the back of the card showing off the boarder die which
I sanded more than the front to bring out even more of the core color.

Here you can see how beautifully the Holly Border looks wrapped around the spine!!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of craftiness!
