New card sizes!

We're seeing more cards that aren't the usual 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" size and they are growing in popularity! Today's cards were received in a swap and exemplify this trend. These are not the somewhat standard quarter-sheet size but rather tall and lean, and they make an eye-catching presentation. The first card is 5 7/8" tall and 3" wide and fits into Stampin' Up!'s small open end envelopes (p. 205). Made with the Sweet of You set from the Winter Mini and accented with the Loves Me designer paper and rose ribbon, it is warm and attractive. Made by Connie Babbert.

The second card was made by Terri Cappobianco and uses the Blossoms Abound set in shades of plum and green. Measuring 8 1/2" x 4", this card will fit the large open end envelopes (p. 205). These cards are unusual and make a striking presentation, allowing you to use your stamps in more unusual arrangements perhaps than on the normal size card.

Try some of these new size cards and give a new perspective to stamps you may already own!

I won't be posting for a perhaps a couple of days because my husband is having surgery, so be careful and stay warm and I'll "see" you soon!
