The challenge this week over at CAS-ual Fridays is CFC106: Create a Clean And Simple card with an element that goes off the edge of the cardfront. Though this technique adds a lot on interest to a card, it's not one I do that often since almost all of my cards go to OWH and since these cards travel a long way to and back from our heroes, making sure a card is strong and sturdy is an important factor. If you are making cards for OWH and decide you want to give this a try just remember that the finished card has to fit in an A2 envelope so you'll need to make the necessary compensation in your card design.
In this design I've made my card base a bit smaller and the die cut is positioned so the overall design from the top of the die-cut to the base of the card measures 4.25".
