introducing Card Wednesdays

One of my scrappy goals is to become a better card maker, so I am going to force myself to make more cards by commiting to show you at least one new card on Wednesdays. Won't that be fun?

I am actually excited to do this and am very happy with the way this first card turned out. It's quite simple, I used a standard-sized card base (4 1/4 x 11 folded in half) and cut the red just slightly smaller. I used a Making Memories tag and red Vintage Findings roses (love these!!) as well as a stamp from American Crafts (perfect for this tag, don't you think?) and some miscellaneous trims. I matted the tag on red cardstock, then black, then used my scallop edged scissors to give it a pretty edge. Lastly, I used foam adhesive to give the card a little more dimension.

So, what do you think about Card Wednesdays? Will you join me?
