A whale of a card

My friends have been trying to convince me to try this card, but it looked too complicated to me! It's not, though! Go make one NOW! LOL

We made this card at Club last night, and it was really fun! I love that it fits in a standard envelope. Here are the instructions I gave my Club members:

1. Cut cardstock to 5 ½ x 12.
2. Score at 2, 4, 8, and 10 inches.
3. Turn, and cut at 1½ inches in from each edge, from the 2 inch score mark to the 10 inch score mark.
4. Fold on score lines as in sample.


Stamps: Animal Stories, A Little Birthday Cheer
Paper: Chocolate Chip 12x12, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip Patterns DSP, Tall Tales DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip Classic and Craft
Accessories: Clear EP, Apricot 1/4" grosgrain, 1 3/4" circle punch
