What's your preferred card size?

Friday, 4 April 2008
Edited: Just to say that this post will stay at the top until it closes so all new posts will be below.

Yay, I've been reunited with my laptop!!!

After reading a post on the Docrafts forum about card sizes, I was just wondering what card size you preferred working with. I have put vote survey on my sidebar with a few choices for you to choose from.

At the moment I'm using square cards of different sizes as well as A6 cards. However it would appear that a number of people on Docrafts are preferring A5 as you can include more detail, which makes sense to me, so I might have to give that a go over the Easter break.

Anyway, this is open until 4th April so I look forward to seeing what you all think!

I'll be back later to post a few new cards that I've made.

    My favourite card size is square. Square of all sizes really! I still like A6 though and DL/slim DL. To be honest I don't like A5 that much unless it is a realy special card with a big image or focal point as I just don't have that much stuff to fill it all up. It will be interesting to hear other people's views though x

  1. HHMM i use A5 in half.... mainly because thats all the envelopes i have to fit in tere! i would LOVE to try more though! :D

    My favourite has to be 4" square, I use them so much

  1. I love square cards, I am totally obsessed with them and hardly ever use any other size. Hate A6, they are just too small and I do find a large A5 a bit daunting sometimes

    Hi Sarah my fav is 5 inch square, although I do sometimes like a5 especially if using a large stamped image. I also saw that thread on do crafts, be intersting to see what others choose as their favs. xx vicki xx

    Hunni, you sound much happier lately. Your cards are really cute and the butterfly will make that lady very happy! I use any size card I can get hold of!! I also recycle cards that I buy from my local scrapstore - at 10p for 10 cards that's great value and they're superb quality too!

    I tend to use square cards, I seem to be drawn to them! I also use A6and if I'm doing a very special card I'll use a 7 x 5 or 6 x 6.

    I nearly always make square cards, 10cm, 12.5cm and 14.5cm. I kind of have to force myself to use other sizes sometimes. To me A5 is just too big for the kinds of stamps and images I use.

    I love working with 3x6 card size.

    I like A2 or A7... but when I get on a roll I like 4x4 squares!

    I change my favorite size card from week to week. I do tend to go back to A6 regularly as it seems to be the best seller. If I do a commission it's nearly always on A5 but am going to try this size as a regular & see what happens. Sharon xx

    I love 4" square cards, but also traditional A2 size. I've tried some other sizes, and feel intimidated when there's too much surface to cover!
