Card Class Project January - 3/4

We are now exploring card No#3 from Januaries class:

 Again, another simple but effective card. We all have these strips of papers left that we keep … just in case they will be needed again. But do they? Not really right? Well here is a nice project where you can put them to good use. I cut mine about 5 1/4" in length and created a 4" wide background. This leaves you with a nice white border around the strips. The phrase on the outside and inside were stamped with Peacock ink. The front sentiment is adhered to a strip of Charcoal cardstock and raised with a few foam dots.

In case you ever struggled with layout ideas, have you ever tried our How-To-Books? Volume 1 + 2 are a great combo for card and page makers and both come in a nice small book form. The new volumes 3 +4 are meant to be placed in one of the small ring bound albums. Volume 3 is for Scrappage makers and Volume 4 is for card makers. They have wonderful ideas with complete measurements and instructions in them. All our card designs in January came from the Volume 3 book. Well, I tweaked mine a little, but that's the beauty of the books. They give you an idea and you change them so they fit your size, papers, occasion etc.
