Non-Traditional Sized Card with Envelope

by Sveta Fotinia

Hello everyone! Today I want to share with you the new card that I made in a non-traditional size.

@fotinia photography 7013I was inspired by the Sweet Moments 6×6 Paper Pack. My idea was to use only one sheet for a card without using a card base. So I folded the sheet in half and got this non-traditional, long card.@fotinia photography 7017I used the Mega Thanks Die to die cut the sentiment from the same paper pad, but using another pattern, and adhered it right in the center. Before I glued it on, I die cut a little heart window with the Halftone Hearts Nesting Die.@fotinia photography 7014To put this card in an envelope, I needed to create also a non-traditional envelope. For this, I took the Vellum Invitation Envelopes and cut it a bit (using my regular trimmer), folded it so it closes properly, and adhered a lovely sticker from the Delicate Blooms Stickers.@fotinia photography 7015I see this envelope in a beautiful bouquet to send to someone for appreciation. How often do you make non-traditional sized cards? Let me know in the comment section below!

SO pretty, Sveta. I love the vellum envelope too, and the “thank you” sticker is the perfect finishing touch.

Thanks for the tip on using a 6 x6 inch paper piece to make a card. Very pretty. I tend to only make A2 sized cards out of habit, I guess. May try your idea soon.

All of my cards come out in non-traditional sizes! I just dive in and whatever happens…. So I make some of the envelopes and add extra paper to the tab in back so that it will seal. Usually I emboss it so that it disguises the fact that the envelope doesn’t fit. Mostly mine are long and too wide for a business size. But it really doesn’t matter!

Such sweet card! Very rarely I make nontraditional size cards. My mother complained a few times about additional postage?

Unfortunately, I never make oversized cards. Someone gave me a box of yellow legal sized envelopes and I have wanted to use them many times but never do. Seeing your card made me determined to get to work on sizes that will fit the envelopes. Thank you

I let the card decide the size and so I make many non-traditional sized cards! It is often a real pain trying to find an envelope! :)
