Project of the Week #8: New Card Size

When I started making cards on a regular basis, I gravitated to the "standard card size" of 5 & 1/2 x 4 & 1/4 inches. I was inspired by the CAS-ual Fridays Blog to try a new card size, 9x4 inches. The appeal of this card size is that it will fit in a business envelope. It does take a couple of trys to get used to this size, but it is fun to play with some new layouts and options. I really like using letter stickers right now.
Supplies Used
Card stock: Tempting Turquoise, Kraft and Whisper White (textured) from Stampin' Up!
Ink: Broken China Distress Ink from Tim Holtz
Embossing folder: Tim Holtz Retro Circles
Stamp: Hero Arts Graph Background
Tools: Sizzix Big Shot & We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
Letter Stickers: Glitz Designs
