File Tab Card

Had a little play today with some papers and embellishments out of the Floral Cardmaker's Ultimate Pack by Hot Off The Press. I really like these packs because they have everything in them except the card blanks and the sticky stuff ... but most importantly, everything matches perfectly so it's a 'no brainer' for selection of your bits and bobs. There are even project ideas for when you have paralysis of the brain like I had today.

I decided to have a bash at a File Tab card ... or at least my version of one .... as I've never made one before. Quite pleased with the finished result but definitely learned a few lessons along the way. I bought a corner rounder punch on Monday and am using it to death at the moment, (as if you hadn't noticed) ... can't believe how easy it is to use and as it instantly removes any shabby edges, the finished card looks much nicer. Definitely a wise investment and one of my better buys.

Hope to have a play later with some of the Oriental goodies I have received this week from my friends at CB.

**UPDATE**
This card was the one I sent to Sequin for her birthday at the weekend.

Your blog candy is on its way to you. It has probably had it's flight over the ocean and is in the hands of the postie. Enjoy!
