Sometimes it is nice to make a card with no stamping so I was excited to see Jacksonbelle's latest challenge... no stamping! I knew immediately that I wanted to play along!
I think I have a new obsession... and it is all Tina's (aka Travelingmama) fault!! I usually make the standard size cards that fit in the A2 envelopes. However... PTI is releasing new envelope sizes today! Woo Hoo! I feel like I can actually do something different now. Very liberating! :) I guess I have just been lazy about finding different sizes of envelopes.
I had just read Tina's post, about her 4x4 cards, right before I started working on my challenge card. I cut the squares with a punch and then decided I wanted a mat behind. Guess what size the mat was... that's right 4x4! I thought... hey.. I can make a 4x4 card now! I will just leave it as is instead of adhering it to a bigger card. So.... I LOVE THIS SIZE CARD! Again... new obsession alert! Thanks a lot Tina! :)
