Fall Elegance Card–Thinking of You


I had a lot of fun creating this card for this week’s challenge. Did you know you could win a $20 GC to The Rubber Café?  It’s really easy. Simply visit this post to find out all the details.

When you sit down to make a card there is nothing like being able to diecut your pieces quickly so you can start playing with glue! Well Spellbinders™ makes it so very easy with their Grand Calibur™ machine. 

Here’s how:

1. Cut card base to 5 1/2 x 11” and card facing at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4. Fold card base in half lengthwise.

2. Pierce card facing with a stick pin at even intervals along each side and adhere to card base using TRC0010 Scrap Happy Glue.
