Can you please let me know how you made the wonderful border with the slip punch? I am a demonstrator, so if there is a technique on Stampin Up site, could you direct me to it?

Great job!  Love the technique…I think I saw that on a Workshop Wow DVD?  Tried out a couple at C'mas, but haven't done any since…hmm…I might just do it again with spring colors! 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂

I just love this border technique.  I am a demo also and would love to learn how to do this.  What is it called?

I don’t know who originally came up with the idea, however, I have seen it called slit punch border, circle border technique and two-tone scallop border technique. I have seen many different ones on and a reference made to Sylvia Drader and I read that Gretchen Barron has a tutorial. I just scored my cardstock at 4 1/4″ and 13/16″ then I used the slit punch on the end where the 13/16″ score is to punch the border using the edge of the punch between each punch. Hope this makes sense! then just fold under on the score line to the inside. Insert a different color piece of cardstock and adhere. HTH

I have been trying to figure out how to do the punches along the side. Please let me know.

I used Stampin’ Up!’s slit punch to make the border. Unfortunately it is retired. Step 1: I made a score line and then slid the slit punch in to the line and punched, then moved it down about the width of the side of the punch (so I could see the edge of the last punch and punched again until the whole edge was done. Step 2: I then folded the edge of the card to the inside along the scored line This popped the half circles out toward the card edge). The card base was Certainly celery. Step 3: I used Elegant Eggplant cardstock inside the card and a strip of Elegant Eggplant was slid in between the folded inside edge, so it was visible where the slit punch made the half circles. Hope you have the punch. And I hope my directions make sense to you. I wish this punch would return along with the horizontal slot punch. Glad you liked my card.
