Just A Note

A regular A-2 card is 4 1/4″ wide.  This card is 4″ wide.  It has a bit of dimension and does fit nicely into a regular A-2 envelope.

I hope you enjoy re-creating this card as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

So, find some great patterned paper, add coordinating cardstock, fussy cut some flowers and create a special easel card to say hello to a special friend!

…the only limitation is your imagination!
