It worked!

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:14 pm by Ms. Petersen


I have wanted to make a “drawer” card for a while now, but for some reason it took me forever to find instructions, and then when I did I had to change the dimensions to fit the notecards I’ve been making for a present. I wasted a lot of paper because of little mathematical errors here and there, but FINALLY, it all came together and I couldn’t be happier. I do think this is my newest all-time favorite card I’ve ever made. Ever! 🙂
