Inspiration for this card was from my friend Alejandra Gomez, She did a make and take at a Vendor show. Hers was made with S.U.
I altered it a big and cut the banner out.

In the CTMH Catalog, the example on page 33 shows to cut a layer and place it behind

All material was cut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge.
