Good Morning and Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a great weekend! Today's card SHOULD have been quick and easy but it turned out to be a nightmare! I used my BossKut Gazelle to cut out the cute little image I got from Art4Crafts and after spending more than 2 hours trying to get it aligned, I decided to call BossKut. I was on the phone with the tech for an hour and 45 minutes, and this is the best it gets. It's still "off" by about 1/32 of an inch but I guess it's better than what I could do cutting it by hand. There are just so many variables when you do a "print and cut" like the way the paper feeds into the printer, the way you put the paper on the mat, how you feed the mat into the machine and the way you set the laser up on the crop mark. You would think after spending that kind of money, it should align itself. Anyway...today's card is for our dog groomer, and other than the trouble I had with the Gazelle, I really had fun making it. Not only is she a sweetheart and so appreciative, she is a dog gone good groomer!
I used clip art images I found on line from Art4Crafts , they have some of the cutest images...I've ordered several sets so you will be seeing them a lot. Many free images are also available, some that I have used in the past with great success. You may want to check them out for the up coming holidays like Valentine's Day, St Patrick's Day and of course Easter --- The card measures 3"x 7" folded and is the perfect size for a dollar bill or a check. The paper is cut at 7"x 8.5, scored at 3" and 6" then folded and notched out with a Stampin' Up Word Window Punch, a Fiskars 1" circle punch and Scor Tape to form the pocket. This is what the inside looks like---Here's the recipe---
