2009 Card

Thanks for all of the great comments. I hope everyone is enjoying my blog and the files I manage to design.

I created this as a graduation card, but I guess it would be good for any event this year. There are two files: one using Base Camp with George and Basic Shapes and the second with Base Camp and Plantin Schoolbook.

You do have to be careful where you place your message on this one. Otherwise, it will show through when the card is closed. Except, of course, if that doesn't matter to you.

The card base is what you see in black--the back and shadowed numbers. On 2009, the 2-0 and the 0-9 are each welded together and cut to trim off any excess created from welding the shadow numbers to the back. Depending on the color you select for the base, you may need to cut an inside piece. I think it really made the numbers pop when closed on this one. You don't need to cut the numbers on the Preview page. That page is just to make the preview look pretty. :o)

Have fun and good luck to all of the graduates out there.
