Off the edge cuts

I learned this technique and thought it a good one to share.

Trim so that the card will fit in your envelope.
For this card, the measurement is 4.25inches from the rabbit’s ears to the bottom of the card,

Nearly March!

Oh my goodness!  It’s nearly March and this is only my 2nd post for the year.
I have been busy with local scrapbooking and cardmaking events…and with my son’s wedding…but I have definitely neglected this site.
I won’t make any rash promises, but I will try to post some interesting items a little more often.
Here are a couple of cards I’ve made recently…plus one I’m currently working on.  I’ll be back to show you more of that one soon.
