Cool border punch technique

Hello, everyone! I hope you had a great week and are looking forward to an even better weekend. I've been home this week on vacation. You know, the kind that means you just don't go to work... We did have fun, though. We took the kids to see fireworks and to a theme park, cooked hot dogs on the grill, ate watermelon out in the backyard. You know, all the fun summertime stuff.
Here's a card I made this morning. My DD is always asking me if I "thought that up myself or did somebody else do it first?" so.....
I got a new border punch and I wasn't happy with the way it was punching. I was messing around with it and said to myself "Hey, self," I said. "That looks pretty cool. I wonder what you could do with that?" I'm sure I'm not the first person that has done this, but I can say that I hadn't seen it somewhere before I made this card. That made DD quite happy. She told me it was "WAY COOL, Mom!" Leave me a comment and let me know if you like it.
