I'm always looking for different and interesting ways to make cards. The other day I found a tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers, (here ) and thought this would make a wonderful card for my husband.
A small-medium side story...I had three cats, two of which loved to craft with me. This summer we found out that my oldest one Rummy (black and white) had cancer and they only gave him a few months to live. He/we were very lucky and he was never in any pain, although he was only skin and bones. New Years Eve he started breathing hard and stopped eating. He made it until New Years Day at 5:25 pm. He died at home and my husband and I were with him the whole time, petting him when he let me and talking to him the whole time, and while not pleasant (of course) he did not suffer and left rather calmly. Which is way more than I can say about how I handled it. Despite how bad my husband felt, Rummy was the first pet we got together, he put his feelings on hold and helped me cope, sort of. Which brings me to why I wanted to make a special card for him. So....
I started out with a 8 X 9.25 piece of card stock, which I scored at 4in.
The rest of this is a bit hard for me to describe, you might want to check out the link above! With the wrong side up, line up 3 of the 5 squares. Scs uses double sided tape, I just used my pink atg gun. Keeping the squares even, run tape down the length of all three squares.
