25th Anniversary Card

Morning all and what a great one it is! Got my work out in and got a phone call for that potential job. I have an interview tomorrow, yay!

My personal trainer put in an order for a 25th Anniversary card and wanted it to have the colors purple, white & silver. This is a new style card for me, but I had lots of FUN making it!

Since there is a little more work involved in this one, I will tell you how I did it. The card base is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". After you cut your card base cut out a single 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" layer of the same color. And then my white paper is cut at 5" x 2 1/4" and you have to have 2 of this size.

Next, I stamped my sentiments onto the 2 white layers and you want to make sure that they are centered. Then I took one of my punches, inserted all the way and punched the center and 2 sides (punch almost to the end but not quite). The first punch I made was used for the tab for the slider.

Finally, I placed the sentiment layer I wanted to be seen second to the single layer. Then attached that to the card base, but don't put adhesive on the ends since this is how the card will slide (Just make sure there is an opening on the side).

After you get this done, its really a simple card to make and you can do so much with it! Hope ya'll enjoy and have a great Thursday!
