I took a look at my Designer Series Papers and chose one that I haven't used very often, Flashback. I love the reds and curry together, and I really like the fact that this is a gender-neutral card. You could bedazzle it a little if you wanted to send it to a girl, but I'm kind of liking it with the option open.
I layered the red onto the very thinnest of a black border. Since only the outer rim of black shows, I used the largest square framelit and cut out the middle. Why not? It doesn't show, it takes away some of the bulk, and now I have a nice black square to use on another card. Smart, yes?
Very Vanilla - 5" X 10", scored at 5"
Basic Black - 4 7/8" square
Red DSP print - 4 3/4" square
Red and Curry print - 2 1/2" x 4 3/4"
Curry circle - #6 framelit or 2 3/4"
Vanilla circle - #5 framelit or 2 5/16"
Since this is a square card, it needs a special envelope. Out comes the Envelope Punch Board! If you don't have this, it is so worth the money for such a versatile tool! I made the envelope with Very Vanilla and lined the back flap with a piece of the matching red from Flashback.
