Can You Use a Left Handed Card?

Have you ever made a left handed card?  Ann did once before and last night she made her second one.

She was cruising right along, following my instructions.  Everything was going fine.

She had 2 handmade roses.  One was a prototype.  And one was just about perfect from our live online class yesterday.

First, we couldn’t find the pristine rose.  (We found that it had dropped into our retired stamps box after we made a third one.)  Then, after stamping the Whisper White piece, she mounted it upside down.

What to do?

You have two choices:

  • Make a left handed card – one that opens on the left.
  • Change the layout.

Removing the offending piece wasn’t an option because it would damage the Whisper White.  So here’s how we did it.  You can decide which is your preferred one.

First, the perfect handmade card for your left handed friend.

Do you like the punch art flower?  It’s not even the best one!

But after we committed to a left handed card, Ann figured out that by just rotating the greeting, we have a tent card.

When we make this card again, I think a nice narrow black border would make it perfect.

Would you like to learn how to make the punch art flower?  We’ll be teaching it to everyone who wishes to join us from their computer at 10:30a Pawcific Daylight Time tomorrow – Saturday, April 25th.  Master Stamper members can register here.

Here are the items that are on the retiring hit list – while they’re available.  I had Ann include the stamp set because it’s in the Occasions Catalog which ends 6/2/15:

Do you have many left-handed friends?

We read & appreciate your comments! They make great bedtime stories for Ann to read to me!
