Lots of interesting and simple effects on this card, starting with the compact square size! I tend to make the same sized cards all the time. So boring! But I tell you the reason is, I like my cards to fit in an envelope. I know I can MAKE and envelope, but let’s face it, I’m not that motivated. LOL. But this little 4″x4″ card is super cute and works just fine enough in an invitation envelope for an 5 1/2″ w x 4 1/4″.
