Festive Christmas Tree ~ Borders

Using cut files in unexpected ways is fun and expands your creativity!

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a cardmaker. I love to create and hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Today I am sharing a card featuring a new cut file from

The cut file I am featuring is called Borders. It is a bundle of 7 different designs that can be used for scrapbooking and card making. It is a cut file so you will need a digital cutting machine. I use a Silhouette Cameo that I have had for years.

To begin, I cut a tree shape using the Advent Tree cut file. I stretched it to get a taller skinny tree. This was my base. I cut several of the scallop borders using some patterned paper from my stash.

The scallops were scored about an 1/8th of an inch from the straight edge. I began layering them onto the tree base adding tiny drops of glue from my Lawn Fawn Glue Tube. I folded each layer and added some Double Sided Adhesive Foam Rounds to create some dimension.

I created my card base to measure 4"x 9.5". I heat embossed a sentiment from Big and Bold Christmas using Versamark Ink, Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, and Wagner Heat Tool onto some patterned paper. Once cool, I added it to my card base

My tree was adhered to the card panel using Double Sided Adhesive and craft foam to give it some lift. For a final touch I added a star  cut from Silver Glitter Cardstock.

I love the way this came together!

There are so many ways to use the new Borders Cut File
