Just a couple of Just Becauses

This is cased from Helen Onulak's color-splash-black-white-a-touch-of-pink.  I needed  a Just Because card for a teacher to give his wife and found this "just because" on Helen's blog.  The other two cards are my first and second attempt.  The lady for whom the card is made is in a sorority whose colors are pink and green.  That's all I know so I tried to use a couple different pinks and greens to give him a choice.

This card has two sides.  I have made these cards before but I don't very often .  It requires a lot of measuring and a blade type cutter which I have but don't use very often.  So it means crawling under my desk and digging it out.  The pattern for this was found in the latest CardMaker Magazine Fall 2010 Fun Folds issue and is patterned after Michele Boyer's card.

This, of course, is the other side of the card.  I can't really tell if it is the front or the back or if there even is a front and back to it.

Ewe yuk!  This is my least favorite of the three.

I have a ton of book work to do today, but I want to play and play and play.
Thanks for tuning in.


  1. I like all the cards, but I must say the fancy fold/cutout one is my very favorite :)

  2. Leslie, I love all three, but my fave is the cutout card. LOVE those colors too! You are super creative & industrious!

  3. Love the pink and green, Leslie. Great cards.

  5. Love the color combo!!! These are fantastic!!
