DCC - Not a Standard Size Card

Fellow Repeat Impression's Rock Star Joy Hadden has challenged us to create a card that is not a standard size card.  I love this challenge because it becomes soooooooo easy to always create A2 (4 1/4 X 5 1/2) size cards.  This challenge takes us out of that rut a bit. 

Here is what I came up with.

I had stamped and colored 3 of these adorable little penguins found here 8812-J - scroll down - and just started playing around.  I came up with this 3 1/4 by 4 1/4 card.  Then it struck me that this would make an awesome gift card holder so that's what I did with the 2nd and 3rd images that I had colored - I created pop up gift card holders that look like this on the inside.   

So super cute and perfect with Christmas coming.   

Now its your turn!  Create a non-standard size card and post it here on the Repeat Impressions blog - The House That Stamps Built for your chance to win an awesome prize - a gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.
