This was a card I couldn't wait to make! It used so many of the new items in the occasion mini that I knew it would be perfect to demo at my stamp club! Boy was I wrong!

I love so many things about this card, but it was NOT easy to make. The new edgelits are a challenge to say the least. Because they are so thin, they move very quickly. A few suggestions I have read about are: using dotto to keep your edgelit in place, or even masking tape. I even took it a step further. I wish I had taken a picture of this, but I didn't. Take the edgelit I used on this card and take a sharpie and mark the center. Then make a mark 2.75" on either side so it would fit perfectly on a 5.5" card. You really need to play around with this product. It does spectacular things, but not without a little training first.
