Long card...a little bit of a change

Hello everyone!
It's the start of a new week. I hope you spend it with family and friends and fit a little crafting in somewhere too! ;)
Today I'd like to share a card I made that is just a little different from my 'norm'....well, size wise anyway...


See what I mean? It's still very clean and simple but I wanted to make a card a little different than the regular 4.25"x5.5" size. This card fits the small standard mailing envelope. Card dimensions measure 6.3/8"x3.5"
I used whisper white c/s as my base then cut a piece of real red a tiny bit smaller than the base. Before I adhered the red c/s I stamped off it with my medallion stamp in chocolate chip ink. Then I used a sentiment from the Whimsical Words stamp set in the same ink. To add just a little dimension, I used my white gel pen on the stamped image and then added a rhinestone brad to the middle.
What do ya think? :) Thanks for visiting

Until next time...
Blessings...
