Sandwich anyone?

I saw this design on my friend Jo's blog . She designed this sandwich board card and she kindly shared the instructions. The insert dangles and it was so simple to make. I can see that this will a popular design this year.
So easy to make. You can use any size card. Just make sure the fold is at the top.
Make a slit 1cm in from each edge. This will hold the insert. Cut out your aperture and decorate the front of your card.
Cut your insert the same size as the front of the card and punch out a decorative edge. This edge will form the tab that hangs through the slit. 

 Now trim the edges of the insert by 1cn on each edge. DO NOT cut into the punched edge or your insert will not hang on the fold of your card DOH. When finished the insert will be T shaped.
 Decorate your insert.  If you are planning to put any depth on your insert such as decoupage or 3d foam then you need to slide the insert through the fold frst.

Just love this design hope you do too.

A Sister is a special person

Especially mine. Our Mum died over 40 years ago and my sister has been like a mother to me.
She's the one who always sees the bright side of things. She's always ready for a shopping day or a cup of coffee (and cake) Sh e's lent me her car, her home and the odd £10 note lol. She often tells me how excited she was when I was born as she had two brothers and she wanted a sister. She's always there for me. So when it's a special persons birthday you need a special card and here's mine.
Happy Birthday Margaret my special sister.
