Hero Arts friendship

Good morning I hope you are all well and stayed safe through  the snow and ice.
The bad weather didn't stop the UPS man whoo hoo!!!
he brought me some lovely goodies from Stampin Up, can't wait to get started.
My new policy is, instead of using a stamp set just to make one card and then putting it away,
i'ts to make 6 cards with the same stamps and colours but for different themes.
That way being more creative with the stamps and using up the cardstock, well that's the theory.

Staying with the theme of clean and simple this card is just a bit smaller than a DL, it opens on the side.
I made it in two pieces by adding  3/4" extra on the front,  scoring it and sticking it  on to the back of the white bottom card.
Back is 71/8" x 4"
Yellow front is 8"x4" scored at one end 3/4"
White top layer 71/8" before I die cut it.
You might have to adjust this depending on how you wish to shape the end.
This stamp set comes with Framelits I die cut them to have a play to decide on the layout but then thought they gave more dimension than just stamping straight onto the card. I love this stamp set and can see me using it often.
