The Paper Shelter Challenge #312 - Border Dies or Punches

I chose the Paper Shelter Ready for School digital stamp this week for a very special girl in my life. She loves to die her hair purple, is a student studying speech and hearing therapy and her uniform is this cololur scheme on the days she has clinic and does therapy.  On a recent trip she bought a beautiful blue, cream and brown backpack, so I really personalised the colouring of this stamp.  She is always on her cell phone so I added a Marianne Collectables cell phone die cut and stamp set. I used the corners of a die cut frame for the corners of my image which was cut with a Spellbinders die, distressed the edges with Dusty Concord distress ink, and stuck it onto some corrugated cardboard from an old box (Yes!  I’m one of those people who saves everything that can be used on a card).  My papers are from the Heartfelt Creations Timeless Amour paper pack.  I added a tag and used a Martha Stewart border punch on the edge.  I found this beautiful broad piece of lace in my stash and I tucked the tag into it then hot glued my flowers on.  I found a piece of string and made a bow to finish it off.

Love the corners of the die cut frame


The cell phone die and stamp set are a must for your next shopping spree
