I would like to make a cake covered in bc and have pourred ganache over the top to drip down the sides. But, do I pour the ganache first and then do my bottom border or do I do all my border and then pour?

Depending on what look you want. If I want the ganache to cover the whole side of the cake and have a 'clean' border, then I'll pour the ganache first, then add the border over the top of it. It looks like the ganache is tucked in behind the border.

here is a cake I did recently, I wanted the white borders to stand out against the dark ganache and didn't want the top to look "messy". It was for a my BFF's husband's birthday. They didn't want anything written on it or anything so I did the ganache because he LOVES chocolate and it looked soooooooooooooooo plain without it!

That cake looks really different. I love that idea.
I was going to do the top all ganache also. But I see your ganache stopped before it reached your border. I guess the border should go on last cause if it does run down to far I could cover it up with the border?
