I made this card for my sister-in-laws birthday. This year we decided to give her a couple gift certificates so I needed a card that would hold a folded 8.5 X 11 inch piece of paper. We printed out a certificate so it was on a full sheet of paper. So this card is a full sheet of paper (8.5 X 11) folded in half. I wasn't used to filling up that much area on the paper so I used some Sizzix balloons and designer paper. Since yellow is my favorite color I HAD to use that! I think the front turned out pretty nice.
