If you can read this then thank a teacher. It's that time of year to appreciate a teacher or teachers. I have retired from the teaching profession in the school system. I'm still working on Sunday mornings teaching an Adult Sunday School class at my church. Today, I want to teach some of you how to do a "lever card". If you research fancy fold cards, this is one that is listed. Let's get started: If you would like to follow go to http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/levercard
•Two 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" pieces of cardstock
