A few weeks ago, I shared a layout from Easter 2013 that I made using this sketch:
As usual, when I was done with my layout I used the scraps from the layout to make a card. I love doing that. Everything is already out and color-coordinated and just the right size for cards. Here's my card:
See the mistake? I didn't... not until I'd scanned it, edited it, and was about to submit it for an article. Here's the improved version:
If you didn't notice the problem, check the lower right corner.
Anyway, about the card... as you can see, I kept several of the elements from the sketch and used the same color scheme as the layout. Because of the extra mailing expense, I don't usually make square cards unless I'll be giving the card in person. Approximately 98% of the cards I make are A2, so it was a fun exercise to make a card that with a different shape.
