Sweet Thing Card with DIY Border Punch

What a sweet card to send for any occasion! You'll have fun making it too, with my Do-It-Yourself Border Punch technique! (See this Brilliant Inkling Here.)

I love the look of border punches, but I don't have any (and I'm running out of room to store anything new!) so I made this out of what I had on hand:
Big Bite
Fiskars Cloud Sissors


The cupcake is from The Angel Company's Spring into April special, which won't be around after April 30, 2009. The set is called Sweet Thing.

Other touches I love: I made the white dots with my Tombow White Gel Pen. Love it! I also added Prisma Glitter.

The flower and button are from the Ava Embellishement jar (doesn't it look like a little cherry?) and the paper is Catelynne.

Click on any of the product links to add them to your secure shopping cart on my site. Go ahead, you've saved a bunch of money on punches! PLUS, THREE OF THE THINGS THAT MADE THIS CARD SO CUTE ARE UNDER $4!

It's your turn! Leave a comment with a link to a border you've created using different punches. I'll choose a random winner on April 30th for a goodie from me. Maybe a limited edition stamp set . . . .
