Better with a Friend
This card is still a standard size but is folded long ways. Cut at 4 1/4 X 11; folded at 5 1/2.
Started with a bright blue card stock as my base for the card. I cut a 3/4 " piece off the top flap at the bottom and added an olive strip of paper that I used a EK border punch to add the decorative border. Rounded the bottom corners on back and front flaps. Next I added a piece of olive paper which I also rounded the bottom corners. The center decoration is a paper frame which I glued down then placed a flower in the center of the frame. I stamped the sentiment below the frame and then add 2 corner brackets at the top. A very simple card because all the elements were ready to go.
Note: The frame, flower and corner brackets were all out the same package I purchased at Michaels some (long) time ago. Sorry I can't tell you who it is by.
