Gor­geous ideas with dies from Joanna Sheen

Bor­der dies are a ver­sa­tile tool in your crafty stash. They’re per­fect for adding pretty, in­tri­cate bor­ders to the edges of cards or aper­tures and can be lay­ered up for a frilly ef­fect. You can die-cut a se­ries of bor­ders in vary­ing shades of the same colour, then layer to­gether to cre­ate an on-trend om­bré ef­fect. Why not try die-cut­ting both sides of a strip of coloured card and use in­stead of rib­bon? Bor­der dies can also be used to cre­ate three-di­men­sional em­bel­lish­ments. Scrunch or fold a bor­der to cre­ate a flower, or con­certina fold sev­eral bor­ders to­gether to cre­ate a rosette. Mix and match to make end­less pretty com­bi­na­tions, per­fect for us­ing on your cards.
