Sometimes, to make an idea work, you have to think outside the box, expand your horizons, and cut your card stock a bit bigger.
And by bigger, I mean 10" x 7", folded into a 5" x 7" card.
Which looks huge when you're used to 4.25" x 5.5".
But super sizing the card was the only way to allow this particular sentiment (Hero Arts, I think) to be matted and have plenty of white space to breathe. The glitter paper (that horridly heavy stuff from Michael's) is so very pretty and sparkly and blue. It was worth super sizing.
This card would be easy to mass produce, by the way. Just sayin'.
