Hi everyone, I recently shared my 6 x 6 Cradle Cards here and mentioned in that tutorial that I would be making other sizes, so here is my 5 x 7 version.
I needed a couple more Easter cards, so I decided to use my cute animal stamps and create this spring scene.
These fold flat like the 6 x 6 and you have space on the back to stamp and write your message.
I can see a lovely Christmas scene, with Farther Christmas flying over the roof tops!
If yours is top heavy, add this support to stop it falling over.
