December Daily: Paper Craft Thursday

I haven't done much - well, not any - paper-crafting the past week. There's just not enough time right now. I did make a card a couple of weeks ago, though, that I really like. It's based on a border punch technique that I first saw mentioned at a blog I found a couple of weeks ago, Frugal Ideas From the Parsonage. I like this card because of its simplicity and elegance. It could be adapted for any season or occasion, and the color variations are endless. I used the same border punch on the border (!) that I used on the central ornament, and placed a strip of cardstock under the border, on the inside of the card, so that the pattern shows through. Hat-tip to Sophia for posting about this technique!

Kelli at There Is No Place Like Home hosts a weekly Paper Craft Thursday. Please visit there to see what kind of paper crafts other people are doing this week!
