If you want new looks for your cards instead of the standard opening, there are quite a lot of different folds you can use that give you a unique look. For my "Hey,Chick" card below the measurements are really easy. Just take your 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of card stock and score on the long side at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8". Now you have an opening that when folded still fits into a standard card envelope. I used Designer Series Paper to decorate the front, as well as some Stitched Oval Framelits to highlight my chick. The new Watercolor Pencils made it easy to give my chick the look she wanted, and to close my card I adhered velcro to the right side of my Oval Framelit, both on the Oval and directly on the card where the Oval was placed.
