I used this layout for my card, but I rotated it 180 degrees so that the larger area is at the bottom rather than at the top.
. . . and then cut my cardstock, as follows:
White - 8 1/" x 5 1/2", 3 3/4" x 5"
Black - 4" x 5 1/4"
Using the copy paper template, I cut a lime green piece and a white piece, trimming the white piece slightly smaller.
Now it was time to cut my Build-a-Sign pieces. After I decided which one of the cute designs I wanted to use for my card, I cut out the pieces using scraps of colored cardstock.
I then colored them with Copic markers to give them a bit more texture . . .
