Then it was suggested that I make it 8 1/2 x 11. The congregation will write notes to her on the same size paper and I will bind it all together into a little book. Even at 8 1/2 x 11, this was hard to make. I followed a sketch from Lord Have Mercy! and then just supersized everything! (The small "card" to the right is a regular sized card just so you can see the difference.)
I did use Stampin' Up stamps on this card, but I had already counted them for my 2010 goal of making sure that all of my SU sets see ink.
