Shocking before and after cards.

Can you see the difference?  I made this card twice, once with my Perfect Layers rulers and again without.  (I did not have the heart to permanently glue down the before).  I made some larger borders this time, I usually use the 1/16th but there are so many different sizes to choose from now and I love the dramatic effect it gives!  The other thing I love about these tools is how I can conserve on paper and mailing weight.  The 3 layers of deep pink were all cut from the same 1/2 sheet of 8.5x11.  I took some pics so you can see what I mean. 
Recognize the gorgeous paper?  Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Bold Black and White printed in grey ink on pink card stock.  I love how versatile that paper set is!  The balloon is from Lindsay's Steampunk Stamp set.
