I've been noticing a lot of cards around blogland with the layered effect using border punches and I've been wanting to give it a try. The most difficult part is deciding on the paper and punches. Going with what I had on hand, I decided on three colors and knew one had to be dark, one light, and the third complimenting both. The patterns had to vary--not all stripes or all flowers. The red could have had pin dots, but do they make cream pin dots? All the ones I've seen are white and I don't think I would have liked that.
