24 Patriotic cards from Authentique Freedom pad: "THANKS VERY, VERY, VERY MUCH" **w/measurements

What fun these cards were to make.  I love taking a 24 page Authentique paper pad and cutting it all up, to end up with 24 cards.    The sentiment is from a stamp set that I bought while in TN recently.  The paper pad is SOOOOOOOOOO awesome!!!  it's from Authentique and is called Freedom!!!  ~ LOVE IT!!!!! 

Here are all the cards I made using the entire paper pad.

To cut each 6 x 6 piece of paper.   I cut off a piece that will be 5 1/4" x 6", then take that piece and cut off 2" piece from the 6" side, then take the 2" x 5 1/4" piece and cut off 3/4" off the end of it making it 2" x 4 1/2".   Hope that all makes sense.  I added this photo to show how I did it.
