I really liked the effect you used with the border punch, but I have trouble getting the same sort of look. How did you do it without the paper looking all crunched up?

Hi! I couldn't find an e-mail address for you, so I hope you check back!! I used the crimper on the paper after punching with the border punch. The paper is much easier to work with after it's crimped. HTH!

Thanks! I did try folding it randomly, but I NEVER thought of using my crimping tool. Usually it sits in the back of my drawer, forgotten. Cheers and thanks for the lovely idea. If I post this card, I'll link it to yours!
