I have been wanting to make some cards using a full piece of cardstock. I think special occasions, like weddings for instance, call for a card that is larger than the usual 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". Here are two photos of my first attempt. The measurements of this pocket-card are 5-1/2" x 8-1/2".
You will notice that I didn't stamp a sentiment on the inside note card. I think it is nice to write my own thoughts every now and then!
