Papertrey Ink - Make It Monday #48: Creating Backgrounds with Border Dies

For this week's MIM challenge, I choose to use the PTI XL Rickrack Border die. I cut out several borders in white card stock and arranged them on a white background. I used PTI's Rosie Posie stamp & die set to make 3 focal flowers and 2 leaves. I popped some of them up with foam for extra dimension and wrapped PTI Pure Poppy Bakers Twine around it. I added the ensemble to a card base of Hibiscus Burst layered with Pure Poppy PTI card stock.
I think if I were to make this design again, I would make the decorative base smaller so that the pink and red mats would be more prominent. Love the texture the rickrack border die made on the background though. Thanks for the inspiration, PTI!
Thanks for stopping by today!
