Ever since I saw this background, I knew I wanted to make a red and white candy striped Christmas card with it.
Through trial and error, I found that cutting the background at 7" created a card that was sized at 5-3/4" x 5". Not a standard size but still not too awkward. You could make an envelope to fit or just use a 5"x7" envelope.
I used colonial white and crystal blue Close to My Heart cardstock for the backing.
I also used the stamp set shown below from the Close to My Heart Frosted Workshop on the Go Cardmaking Kit (click HERE to see more):
The Close to My Heart Frosted Workshop on the Go Cardmaking Kit makes 15 cards, 5 of each of the 3 designs shown below and comes with the stamp set above and everything to make these cards except for the inks. The kit includes full color instructions and a cutting guide.
The Close to My Heart ink colors you need are cocoa, ruby, twilight and olive - you can see those HERE.
In the photo above, I did Cuttlebug some of the sections - the Cuttlebug folders are not included in the card making kit.
