Here's an idea for a larger 8 1/2x11" card

I really enjoyed making this huge card.  It gives lots of space for several people to write their comments to the person receiving it.  The actual card stock measured 11x17" scored and folded to form 8 1/2x11"

Creative cards to inspire your creativity

Card size 5X 7 White card stock base

Design Paper from Michaels 12 x 12 open stock

Spellbinders die: Decorative Labels 8

Stamp: Close To My Heart D1308 "Treasured Life"

Butterfly Punch: Martha Stewart (2 in 1) punch

Clear Glitter pen(enhancing scrolled paper pattern), Ribbon and pearl embellishments.
The embellishments for this 8 1'2" x 11" card pictured below are as follows:  Pearl tipped stick pins: with beads glued into place with Glossy Accents and added to double Bowed ribbon.  The string on Mini Pearls were attached to the outlined (inked) cut out from design card stockusing Glossy Accents ( I found the glossy accent product was faster drying than other adhesives).  I glued a 2" to 3"section in place at a time.  This helped with tight corners or small curved lines.).  Spellbinders (larger die) "Resplendent Rectangles" and (smaller die) "Decorative labels 8" edges were inked  using CTMH Twilight and a sponge applicator.   The Stamp greeting is from CTMH "D1452 Find Your Style".
This huge 8 1/2 X 11 Card was from 11"X 17" card stock. The details re tools used for this card are listed above with the exception of the bottom scroll  Border from EK punches.  This punch can be purchased at JoAnn Fabrics, AC Moore or Michaels.
Card size 5X7.  Base yellow card stock back and border side measured 6 3/4" Scored and folded at 1 3/4" after the EK border punch was used to form the decorative side border.  The design Card stock was from DCWV "Pocket full of Posies" Matstock. The Martha Steward butterfly punches were covered with Stickles and after they dried, the edges were sponged with CTMH Twilight ink pad.  The label was from the Spellbinders "Decorative Labels 8" dies the edges were inked with the same products as the butterflies. The "Cute as a Cupcake" and tiny bow stamps were from the CTMH 'Paper Doll D1547' set.
Card size 5 1/2 X 5 1/2" using White Card stock.  The embossed 3 panels were cut at 1 1/2" wide x 5"long.  The outside 2 panels were glued in place before the centre panel to allow balanced spacing.   The 3 daisies were punched with a Marvy (larger) and a recollections (smaller) daisy punch.  The larger daisy has 2 rows of petals (one formed with pedals facing down and   the 2nd layer petals curved in different directions with the use of a scoring bone. The centre small daisy was cupped by pushing into the centre of the daisy with a large stylus,  then embellished with a rhinestone.   Each daisy was glued in place at the end of each (ribbon cut) shaped panel.  The anniversary stamp was found at a local dollar store.  It was stamped on white car stock,  then cut out with fine pointed scissors and  placed in position with pop dots.
