Happy Fall Y'All
A nice thing about making your own cards is that you can make them any size you want. Recently, I had something to mail that required a large business envelope (#10).
I wanted to include a card, so I made one to fit. The card is 4" X 9".
The top and bottom embossed panels are made from a piece of cardstock that had been embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder (3 1/2" X 5 1/4"), which I cut in half diagonally. The center panel was cut from another piece at the same angle. The stamp is an old unmounted one so I don't know who made it. This was cut out with a Nestie. The pressed leaves are from my neighbor's tree that fall in my back yard. I collect and press them every year. It's a crabapple tree.
