As it is my husband's birthday next week, I thought I would experiment with this shape for his card, on the pretext that if it went wrong it wouldn't matter too much!
The middle section was created in Publisher, and is basically a birthday wishes message mounted on some blue backing paper with white seagulls from Joanna's Cottage Garden cd, with some corner peel-off embelishments.
The bottom and top of the card was decorated with some more card stash - had it yonks - it was 12" square card. Possibly came free with a Docrafts Goody Bag. I edged this will the new peel-off on a roll from Joanna Sheen - brilliant for those times, when a normal peel-off isn't long enough. It was very shiny too a bit like mirri card.
Having, I think, been successful with my first attempt - will now attempt some variations. Now as it is my birthday at end of month - what would I like OH's card to me to look like, and how much shall I charge him! grin!
