One layer notecard


OMGoodness! Have you had the occasion to visit Susan Raihala’s blog, Simplicity? Susan is on SCS as well under the user name LateBlossom.

If you like CAS cards, you really need to check her out.

She created this wonderful one layer notecard, which inspired me to create this.
I used PTI's white cs for this. OMGoodness! PTI's cs is to die for! It is so smooth and wonderful. It's also sturdy and thick enough to stand by itself without looking or feeling cheap and flimsy. I just love it!



These are super quick and simple. The most time consuming thing was the gold lines around the edges. Now, because I struggle with straight lines, even with a ruler, I cut a thick piece of chipboard ¼ inch smaller than my base, then laid that on top of my base and traced around the edges with my gold pen.
Gorgeous! I cranked out a few of these, boxed them up and TA DA!



Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!
