{ A2 "Go To" }

I have had several requests for A2 cards & envelopes. So, I made an envelope template and decided to teach one A2 Card in both my 3-Card and 5-Card classes each month. For those who don't know, an A2 Card is half of an 8.5" X 11" piece of paper and measures 4.25" X 5.5" when folded.

The idea behind these "Go To" A2s is a quick & easy Card that uses one piece of double-sided patterned paper for both the Card front and the Envelope...and a half of a piece of 8.5" X 11" cardstock for the Card base, as I said. So, quick, easy...and CUTE. I also thought of calling these "Frugal and Fabulous". LOL

The hardest thing about doing these is not embellishing them to death! But, I have managed so far. Feast your eyes on these babies:

Ok, so I broke my own rule on the first card. This Daisy D's patterned paper is clearly not double-sided, so I had to do an Envelope liner...and...I...kind of...matted the patterned paper on the card. But look how pretty it is! And its still simple and classy (if I do say so myself). I'm happy to say that the picture actually does do it justice. The butterfly is from the Hannah Montana cartridge. I think this would be a lovely "Thinking of You" card, don't you?

This uses Graphic 45's Triumphant from the Renaissance Faire line, which is double-sided. With some planning, I was able to cut the paper for my Envelope in such a way that a portion of what remained made sense for a "How in the World Are Ya?" card. Ta Da!

Thanks for stopping by!
