Default EK Success corner and border stamps

Can, or has, someone come up with the dimensions for the EK punches to create a complete border around a card? The "instructions" say the border itself is a 2 inch repeat but I can't figure out how to get the corner and border to work together.

Thanks. I've been really frustrated with this one. Those are the figures he came up with but we both thought "Naa, they wouldn't use odd numbers like that."

Oh, yes they would. I thought using such an odd measure like that would make the punches a lot less useful. I wanted to punch around the liner for an A2 sized card but the measure is fine one way and too narrow the other. There is a pdf file from Martha Stewart about how to use the punches. I attached it.

Martha Around the Page punches are much more user friendly that EK Success. Her measurements are much easier to do. I still can't figure out why EK Success would do that. You can't even push your paper up to the stop and have them work properly. You have to turn the punches upside down and eyeball them. GHEZ!
