Decorative Square Card - Alternate Sizes

A few days ago, I posted a video on how to make a decorative square card (find it here) and at the end I shared a few alternate sizes. I've had a few questions on measurements so thought I would share more details today.

For this Thanks I'm Lost Without You card, the panels measure 3"x4" and fold flat, it measures 4"x6". Here are the details:
  1. Base measures 4" x 12". Score at 3", 6" and 9".
  2. Strip to attach the two ends measures 1" x 4" and is scored at 1/2".
  3. Patterned papers are cut to 2-3/4" x 3-3/4". You will need three of them and then a lighter patterned paper or piece of cardstock for the greeting panel.
  4. Decorate as desired. I used products from Stampin' Up!'s Going Places collection (Paper Stack #140581, Going Global stamp set #140748)
  5. The envelope was created using the envelope punch board (#133774) and a sheet of the Perfectly Artistic dsp (retired SAB 2016 item).
  6. The 'Thanks' is from the Expressions Natural Elements (#138395) and is brushed with the gold Wink of Stella (#141898)
  7. Ribbon is a piece of the 5/8" striped cotton ribbon cut in half (#138417)
Here's a photo of the other side.

For this next decorative square card, the panels measure 4"x6" and folded flat, the card measures 6"x8".

Here are the details:
  1. The base is created from a piece of 6" x 12" cardstock scored at 4" and 8" and an extra 4" x 6" piece of cardstock. 
  2. You will need two strips measuring 1" x 6", each scored at 1/2". These are used to join the 2 pieces mentioned above, together. 
  3. The decorative panels measure 3-3/4" x 5-3/4". The two front panels were embossed using the Fluttering embossing folder (#139304).
  4. Most of the embellishments come from Memories in the Making Project Life Accessory Pack (#140574) and the watermelon polka dot panel is one of the cards from the Memories in the Making PL Card Collection (#140573).
  5. This card was for my mom for her birthday, so I wanted to add a photo of the kids. So on the polka dot panel I added a mat for a photo. I think it measured 2-1/2" x 3-1/2.

I think those are pretty much the details. I'd love to see what you create! If you create a decorative square card, comment with a link to a photo in this post.

Have a creative day!
