For lending an ear.....

Isn’t this cute??? You can hardly tell from the picture, but it has a cute little window! My picture taking skills lack…don’t hate just give me pointers mmkay? I love these colors together but never seem to pull them out to play with for some reason….

I started off making a standard card from cream card stock. I used a marker to color the tag stamp (since it was a solid stamp it gave me that neat effect) and placed/stamped it where I wanted the tag  cut out to be on the card. Using a craft knife I cut it out. I then made the panels for the front of the card and adhered them. I flipped the card open and using the existing tag hole, cut out the “tag” from the back side so the front panels were no longer covering it. I placed a panel on the inside back of the card, then, closing the card I attached the tag to the inside using the tag hole as a placement guide. I temporarily tacked a panel to the inside top, flipped the card over and once again cut the “tag” out (thru the front this time). I removed this panel and attached acetate over the hole with double sided tape and then firmly reattached the inside panel to make it look all pretty. I added a ribbon bow and a rose to the outside and pearls to dress up the inside.

  • card stock - maroon & cream

The best feature of this loan is that it doesn't require any credit check. Advantages: It's not just an efficient way to do business while you're on the go - it's also pretty darn impressive. Illustrations, graphs, and any other sort of document could be easily shared and passed back and forth between fax machines. Complicated procedure would obviously be annoying, as it delays the loan approval. Though it is not required but it is better if you fill it up with the subject of your mail. The messaging feature is a voice answering machine associated with the Popfax account. Sometimes bridging the technology gap does call for a detailed explanation on just how certain new forms of communications work.
