OLW94 - Size Matters



This week's One-Layer-Wednesday challenge is hosted by Cheryl. She challenged us to make a card that is not a standard 4.25 x 5.5 size. I rarely do, anyway (most of my cards are 4.25x4.25 - they're square, but still fit in the regular envelopes and therefore do not require extra postage) but I figured the point of the challenge was to do something different.

This card is 3.5 x 4.75 (started out as 3.5 x 5, but there was a quarter-inch of air above that top tank!).

I will make a bunch of cards in this (or slightly different) designs for my son to use as his thank-yous after his recent birthday.

The tank is from DeNami (fluffy chick removed as explained here) and the sentiment uses Lawnfawn's Harold's Alphabet.

I just showed it to my son - he loves it! (of course right now he's practically drunk on the feeling of school being out - he may not be quite so enthusiastic when it comes time to write them all!)


Other business: If you are the person who liked the bird stamp from Michael's in this post, please email me at ardythpr@gmail.com - I found the stamp and can mail it to you if you still need it!
