More Day of Gratitude Cards

Below are two cards each using using the same stamped centerpiece and a piece of Autumn Spice Designer Series Paper. My first thought was to create my card using the sample in the 2010 Holiday Mini. However, I soon decided there was an easier way to ink this stamp and I love how it turned out. Here is Carrie's card which is the catalog card with a twist:

This will be one of my club projects for October. I used a different pattern of Autumn Spice Designer Series Paper and used the Big Shot to create the the background for the stamped focal point. My card below:

I love your "Day of Gratitude" cards.  I would really like to know how to make the border that you placed under the medallion feature of the second card.  Would you be willing to share?
Thank you,  Nancy

The border is made with the Big Shot and Stampin’ Up!’s Top Note die by die cutting the piece 4 times.
1. Die cut with Top Note
2. Turn 90 degrees centered on die and cut again ( you have a “square” die cut piece.
3. Rotate about 1/2 way on one side of the “square” and cut again.
4. Rotate 90 degrees to cut the last 2 sides.
Hope this helps. I know it is hard to visualize, however, once you start cutting, the pattern will emerge.
