How did they do that? January 7, 2016

JANUARY 7, 2016
At this time of year, I have a lot of thank you's 
I need to send.  I received manyblessings from many
 friends over Christmas and I would like to make some thank
you cards.  I saw this card in the Sale a Bration catalogue 
and thought I would case it.  It uses the Botanical Gardens 
paper and the Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum 
stack that matches.  Yesterday I shared Stampin' Up!'s 
video where theyshow you how the paper matches. 
 Simple right?  Maybe not.....
I cut a 4x5" piece of designer series paper and tried to line 
it up with the vellum. 
I flipped it and flopped it and turned it round and round 
and I could only get it
to line up with one corner of the vellum.  

I called in Irv and he asked it I still had a full sheet of paper.
Luckily there are 2 sheets in every package.  Within seconds
he matched the pattern.  Yes, that's right...dead centre.  
So if you want to line the vellum paper with the designer paper,
you will need to cut the matching piece out of
the centre.  
With a Stampin' Trimmer it's easy to cut out the centre.
Now I will have enough to make 2 of the cards 
in the sale a bration catalogue.  
I won't be able to make 12 of these cards
 but it will be perfect for a couple.  

And I will be able to create something else 
out of the paper I'm left with.  
It makes a great floral frame...don't you think?

Thanks for visiting today!
