How did I do that .. Zoe layering technique

I would like to share my layering technique I used here on Snowy Day

This is a favorite of mine, and I probably do this technique too often, but I love the results!!

You will need a middle section and two coordinating colors of patterned paper cut 1inch each, then an additional 3 strips of cardstock for each side, so you should end up with 1 center piece, no wider than 7 inches, 4 1 inch strips of patterned paper, and 6 strips of cardstock

Next punch out the strips, using one of your favorite border punches!!

Ink all of your edges and distress the edges of the patterned papers

And here are a couple of close ups, that show the technique closer up :)

Must try this, I love the layered boarder punch look, but just can't get it to work for me. Thanks for the inspiration.
