You know I love a bumpy and lumpy card but once in a while it is such a good feeling to be able to put just one stamp on a card and send it on its way.  Yes, it really is the little things.  Today's card is one that fits that description.  It all started when I got an email from Sherry asking me about this card.  I wrote her back with some measurements and thanked her for stopping by my blog.  Something bothered me about what I sent her so this morning I decided to make the card using the information I emailed and you know what?  I gave her bad information!!  I have since emailed her the correct information but I feel badly.

Here's what you need to know:

1.  Cut a  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base out of Whisper White cs.  
2. Cut a Basic Black cs  layer  4" x 5-1/4"
3. Cut a Whisper White cs layer 3-3/4" x 4-3/4" . 
4. Randomly stamp the Flowering Flourishes stamp in  Black ink.
5. Cut this piece into 1-3/16"inch strips ( 1-3/16" x 4 = 4-3/4") I know 1-3/16" is a crazy measurement!  Just cut between  1-1/8" and 1-1/4"
6. Keep the strips in the order you cut themwhich will make re-assembly easier.
7.  Layer the strips on the Basic Black piece of cs leaving a strip of black showing between each strip.
