A "Prideful" card....

My hubby needed a LARGE card for a guy where he works that co-workers could sign. A standard A2 card was just too small! I didn't want to use my good designer papers on this so I found some printed paper in my stash to use. I used a full sheet of white cardstock and folded it in half and went from there! I even did Vellum Staining to lightly color the vellum.


Stamps: Take Pride, Running Stitches
Ink: Starry Night PH, Moonlight White Brilliance
Papers: white, vellum, navy
Other: brads, scissors, 1/4" hole punch (can you figure out where I used it?)

Some of the guys where he works really like this card and most of them are Hispanic! One even wanted my business card for his wife! How cool is that!
