I’ve got a mind-blowing tip to extend a card! Are you ready for this?

Some Tuesday Tips are just mind-blowing. Today’s tip video falls in that category. Why? Well, I think we have all been in a position where we needed a BIG card with LOTS of space for everyone to sign their name and a little message. That’s not easy within a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” area. Today I am going to show you several ways you can EXTEND an A2 card to allow plenty of room for others to sign. I think you’re going to like this.

I hope you enjoy today’s throwback video as I continue to heal from my surgery. Now, let me share the cards so you can get a better idea of what they look like. I know you have seen the first 2 cards before (if you missed them, CLICK HERE to watch the video) but as I shared in the video, sometimes you just need to add a little extra to a card you’ve already made. I love this tip to extend a card!

Isn’t this a fabulous idea? I have used this extended card idea so many times since I shared it last year. I am amazed at how many times I have needed a card for a group to sign.

My hope is that you were super inspired and I hope you will keep this idea in the back of your mind for when you need it.

I will be back with a NEW video on Thursday. I have to sssssslowly go back to making videos to keep my physical therapist happy. I must be a good little patient.
