4 Bar Sized Cards

Hello. Lately, I've been enjoying 4 Bar Sized Cards. A 4 Bar Sized Card measures 3 1/2 x 4 7/8This size is new to me and it's refreshing to work on a smaller canvas. I've created a card set using 4 Bar Note Cards from Lawn Fawn...

These note cards come in a variety of vibrant colors and designs (I've linked them all below in the supply list). I used THIS, THIS, and THIS pack to create this set. Since the size is smaller, you can create cards quickly. I colored THIS unicorn with Copic Markers and adhered it down on a piece of vellum along with some sequins, and a die-cut cloud that holds a coordinating sentiment. Using the vellum allowed the design to still show through but toned down the pattern to bring focus to the images. 

Here's a closer look at each card...

I added some Wink of Stella for some shine and heat embossed the sentiment to make it pop...

There are also envelopes available for this size. Lawn Fawn has THESE envelopes. Simon Says Stamp carries THIS and THIS pack of wood envelopes. They also offer THESE 4 Bar Cards. I plan to give this card set as a gift, so I will be putting them all in THIS clear box. 

If you're looking for more card inspiration in this size, you must check out Debby Hughes' blog HERE. She creates a lot of 4 Bar Sized cards and they are stunning! 

I hope this has inspired you to give this size of card a try. Thanks so much for stopping by!
