If there’s one thing I know, it’s that we don’t tell our friends enough what a blessing they are to us.
They laugh with us, cry with us, share their favorite books and pop by with a handmade loaf of banana bread.
Sometimes they live close and sometimes they live very, very far away.
Today would be a great day to let one of your friends know just how much their friendship has blessed you.

The Trick to Cutting Card Stock on An Angle:
To cut your card stock on an angle AND have both pieces of your card stock line up nicely on the front of your card, start by cutting your white and blue card stocks to 4″ wide. If your pieces are 5″ long then you can make 2 cards after you cut your pieces.
Place your white piece in your paper cutter at an angle. You’re probably going to get a little bit different angle every time you cut and that’s okay… that’s what makes each handmade card unique!
Then after you’ve cut one piece at an angle that you like, layer your two card stock pieces together with your angle cut piece on top. Line the angle cut up with the cutting grooves of your paper cutter like this…
Firmly hold the card stock you still need to cut into place, remove the already cut piece and make your second angle cut.
