Flapper Card!

Sunday, August 23, 2009 Day 176 - Super Sketchy Sunday . WOW! Done on the day of the sketch. One point for me! Down hill the rest of the week! This is the sketch...

And this is the front of my card. I used a 12' x 12" card stock and cut it down to 4 1/4" inches X 12". I folded it so the top would fold over to make the point of the card. Made a 'belly' band to keep it closed.

And the following picture is the inside of the card so you can see how it lays out. I put a So Saffron panel matted on Chocolate Chip for the inside writing panel.


I'm off to finish cleaning up my stamping space. First time since the first of June! Have a good week and if you live in the Midwest...keep enjoying our wonderful, cool weather! SAM
