You’re Aces!


Hi everyone,

It's challenge time again over on the Riley and Company blog. This time round it is Kelly’s turn to host the challenge.

Kelly has challenged us to an "Off the edge!" theme. Create a card with an image/sentiment extending the border of your A2 card

For my card today I used Riley and Company’s Poker Riley.


I cheated a little bit in that I used the Sizzix Regal Stand Up Card Framelits to create my card … when it is opened in the display position the image is “off the edge”. I love making this style of card. Just for good measure I did also create my sentiment panel (which btw was computer generated) so that it was hanging off the edge too.

On the right hand side of the sentiment panel I added 4 tiny playing cards which are all Aces which goes with the “You’re Aces! Happy Birthday” I put on the sentiment panel.


Here is my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope.
