Mother's Day

I've just made this card for my mother from one of my scrapbook pages. I have a little trick. I change the image size to 5.5 x 5.5 inches and make a template 5.5 inches high by 11 inches long. This prints out perfectly onto an A4 page and looks beautiful on glossy paper. Christina Re's square envelopes from d-i-y stationery are the right size and come in many beautiful colours. If the back of the card is going to be white I add a layer to my original template and put a one pixel stroke of black around it so I have a cutting guide. Score the fold for a perfect edge.
