This card is 5 x 7 and though I always make boxes for my cards, they are always square. It took just a minute of calculating to come up with the measurements and low and behold, the card fit in the box nicely! I used the coordinating paper from the card to make the box top. No stitching or layers, just the DP.
I certainly tested my abilities to sew straight with this card. One thing you have to do when you stitch down the stripes is to sew straight!
