Stamp Club Project #2

There are so many great tutorials on line.  So when Shirley, our May hostess, suggested making a lever card I took on the challenge.  I am always interested in trying something new.  I found a great tutorial written by Krissie O'Donnell and got started on my card. I have three slightly different versions to share with you today.


I think the third card is my favorite.  Here is what the card looks like when it is open.

 If you decide to make a lever card, remember it does take some time to complete.  Cutting and adhering the two pieces of cardstock is the most difficult part.  I recommend using the Stampin' Up Trimmer to cut out the windows in the cardstock and DSP.  I have to admit that I have tried multiple brands and types of trimmers over the past seventeen years. Stampin' Up worked a long time to get this one right.  They did a good job and it has become my go to trimmer.  I am looking forward to trying the brand new rotary attachments in the 2013-2014 catalog.
