  1. Draw a grid on the inside of your cardbase.


  2. Line up your punch on the grid, this grid will enable you to punch vertically and horizontally.


  3. Punch three times.


  4. Apply anti-static product to scrapbook paper and stamp image, then emboss with fine line black embossing powder and heat with heat gun.
  5. Glue a large enough scrap of the scrapbook paper under your punched border to cover the grid that you drew or you can carefully erase the grid and leave the punched border open.
  6. Cut out your stamped image with rectangular Nestibilities.
  7. Now die cut a dark green scalloped Nestibilites and glue the stamped image to it.
  8. Die cut a light green slightly larger rectangle and another even larger scalloped rectangle out of dark green.  Layer as shown in picture.
  9. Attach the layered portion to  the card base.  As you can see from the two samples, both the portrait and the landscape layouts are attractive.
