Okay here are my six cards together in one picture-don't they look nice? and this is my favorite card it's my own take on a gate fold card. I cut the paper to 11x4.5 and then scored it along the 11 in at 2.75 from each end. I layered on 4.25x4 inch panel and I punched the word window twice to create the "latch" and put the label die cut popped up over the holes, I used these new over sized brads to hold the latch onto the card. The whole thing locks together since the panels layer into each other as you close the card. I just love SU's Bill board letters that I used for "Hello"-read the next post to hear more about the challenge. I was thinking last night that from now on when I get a pack of new paper I will automatically cut 4 inches from one of each sheet and then cut that to 5.25, 5.25, and 1.5 and perhaps start curing my hoarding. This was so fun-I love this paper even more-and luckily for me SU puts two of each in every pack so I still have one more piece-but I love these cards so much it was worth cutting the paper all up!
