This card uses a 1 3/4" strip.. that I used a punch at the one end to make a banner.. the sentiment piece is 3/4" tall and I am not sure the width.. but you would only need to make it big enough to fit your sentiment and then go up 1/8" on both sides to make a layer.. the butterfly is die-cut and adhered to a vellum circle.

This card is the one of two that I made like this.. I used the leftover strips to make this.. a punch to punch out the ends to make like banners.. I stamped the sentiment onto a circle and punched it out.. then layered it on top of a circle of the same size.. I don't have one that is a tad bigger and I didn't feel like dragging out dies to cut two circles.. so I went with this method.
This is an odd sized card.. but top panel is 4" x something.. you can cut it to fit a regular A2 size card.. the panel is 1" by the length needed for a sentiment.. and the layer is 1 1/8".
this card uses a 1 3/4" strip that I used a punch to make the banner with. The sentiment strip is about 3/4" wide.. and wide enough to fit the sentiment. I punched out a butterfly using an EK Success punch and then embossed it.. it's layered on top of a vellum cirlce that was punched out. **NOTE: adhere the butterfly to your circle.. then flip it over and put adhesive on the back of the circle under where the butterfly is adhered.. then I put a strip on the bottom of the circle where the sentiment would cover it up and none shown through.. the sentiment is on Dimensionals.
these are the cards I made using "strips" that were left from using up nearly the entire paper pad.. super easy cards.
thanks for looking ~
have a great airborne day!
