Keep It Simple

 Two versions of the same design.
The first is in cream and dark green,
while the second is in white and blue.

The embossing folder paper was first cut to
5.25 x 4 inches and then embossed.
Next it was layered over the plain colored paper.
(the dark green and the blue)
This plain paper was trimmed to a narrow
border with a layering ruler.
I used an EK border punch for the borders.
Usually I punch them out using a narrow piece of paper
that is twice the length of the DP border,
 then cut in half and attach to each side of the border.
Now attach this to you EF (embossing folder) and
colored paper piece.  I like to make by border piece slightly 
longer than required then trim them after they are attached.
The whole is now ready to glue
to the card base.

On the green version I punched
out an Anna Griffin butterfly.
Love those butterflies.
