Becca Bit: Perfect Mitered Frame using Border Punch

Scroll down to the next post if you following the Our Daily Bread Blog Hop and want to enter for the Blog Candy.

You will absolutely squeal when you see how easy this is.  Really, I promise!  So many of you asked me to show you how I created the mitered frame used on this card; so I took a break to put together the video.  I knew this would be short and sweet, and with this under your belt, what can’t you do paper diva?  So I hope you have a couple of minutes to learn something new, quick and easy, moreover, I hope you’re able to put it to use on an upcoming card.

I’m hopping along in a special blog hop tomorrow morning so I hope to see you then.   Take care friends!!

  • DelamaJune 1, 2011 - 10:37 pm

So thank you again.
    Have a nice day :)

    Thanks Becca!!! So easy yet so elegant. And I can visualize using these technique in scrapbooking a garden themed page. Leave one edge straight, make the middle half the size and then turn it into an arbor. Then use punches to make different flowers to put on it.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca! I puzzled a long time after seeing your card trying to figure out how you’d made this frame…didn’t expect it to be so easy. Thank you for always being such an inspiration!ReplyCancel

  • Francie (Montreal)June 2, 2011 - 5:05 pm

    I had my two-cents worth attached to my comments on an another of your projects. I was thrilled to bits to see how you did this, Becca. I’ve wrestled with it since seeing a similar technique of yours last summer. Here it is again, in case you missed it.

    Thank you so much for the tutorial Perfect Mitered Frame. I mean really thank you. Do you know I went out and purchased a geometry set when I first attempted this technique last summer. I had not used a compass nor protractor since high school many decades ago. I still ended up with a lopsided parallelogram instead of the square I was shooting for.

    I can’t wait to get home and attempt this again, following your tutorial. I’m so grateful to you.ReplyCancel

  • SusanJune 2, 2011 - 6:27 pm

    Hi Becca,

    I’m fairly new to card making with just starting last September. A friend told me about Splitcoast Stampers and from to time I would check it out. I came across one of the cards you made and absolutely fell in love with your card making style. Each and every day I look forward to checking out your web site to see the next amazing thing that you’ve made. You’ve been quite the inspiration to me. Just wanted to say thank you for all of your tutorials and Becca Bits. I never knew that I would fall in love with making cards.

    Thank you for all that you do and for the wonderful inspiration you bring to your followers.

    God bless !!


    Ime to time
