091309 project #3

I wanted to mention today that a key point in making a large number of the same card (such as for convention trades and holiday greeting cards) is to make the assembly simple. This card uses DSP layered on the base white card - and yes it is retired DSP. The white layer was stamped in gold encore ink - I also used a gold paint pen to edge that piece (sorry Donna, but I love the way that edging sets off the layer.) The ornament was stamped on a separate piece of cardstock and then was popped out with the new ornament punch using dimensionals. The label was die cut from the matchbox die and Big Shot and it is also edges in gold. The gals positioned the brads using the order form edge to align the holes evenly. Great card - I have seen several variations on this idea several places.
