MAKE IT YOUR OWN Some ideas to personalize / change-up your cards... • • • • •

Ink edges of each piece. Use decorative scissors or tear PP1 & PP2 on the diagonal. Use a corner rounder or ticket corner punch on the pieces. Turn the layout 90 degrees for a portrait card. Instead of ribbon or fibers, use strips of paper cut to 5.25” wide. For more infomration: Alicia Ekermans crafty_al@comcast.net http://callmecraftyal.blogspot.com
