Default I have never seen this before

I received a card from a friend who also makes cards.

The white card base was 4 1/4 by 5 1/2, but then she glued a sheet of black cardstock 1/4 bigger on the back of it! I really like it, just hadn't seen it before.

I do this except the back cardstock piece is regular card size and the white or vanilla card is a 1/2 inch smaller all the way around. I love to do this especially is I am making the card end up too heavy to stand up to the white or vanilla to stand on it's own.

Doesn't that mean it is wonky standing up?

When I do this, the colored back piece is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. The cardbase is 4 x 10 1/2 folded at 5 1/4. It looks just like a standard card when it's laying flat.

But it can't stand on its own, can it? Because the base is a single mat, and the part that opens like a tent is shorter.

Looking at the first of your pictures PH, it looks as though it has to lean against something?

I guess the point is to save $$ as you're only using 1/4 sheet of colored cs instead of a half???

this is the style I use when I'm mailing cards to people who I know will not be displaying their Christmas cards.

I just read a thread that mentions "remaking" cards that have been signed by the person who actually made it. So I would never make a card like the one you describe because I would worry that the person who receives it might think it was a "remade" card.
