As soon as I saw the sketch, my border loving self kicked in! I knew after I saw it, I had no other choice than to use it as a border! I didn’t do the stitching aspect, I just used two different pattern papers, cut them with the Cricut at two different sizes and then layered them.
The grass was made with Martha Stewart Fringe Scissors.
Here's a closer look at the details:

"Birthday Party" card by Melissa Elsner
Supplies - Paper, Die Cuts, Banner Sticker: Pink Paislee; Resin Flower: Maya Road; Ribbon: Offray, Liquid Pearls: Ranger Industries; Pen: Zig Memory System; Electronic Cutter: Silhouette SD; Corner Punch: EK Success
Variation #1: To make the diamonds for the argyle pattern I created three diamonds in the Silhouette software using the dimensions given in the sketch. I then welded them together and cut them out. This made it super easy to create the shapes from scratch!
Variation #2: Instead of stitching, I simply used my ruler to measure out the criss cross lines and then drew them with my Zig pen.
Variation #3: This pattern worked perfectly as a backdrop for the cupcake and the sentiment.
