      Hi Denise 🙂 The card base measures just over 5.25″ and the layers are about 3/16″ smaller. The smaller panels are to the size of the square dies I have 3.75″ square and 2.75″ square. Again, the layers are about 3/16″ smaller on each panel.
      Hope that helps.

    I love how you did this card. It’s so cute and I love how you cut out the die. I don’t have a die cutter but maybe if I had a simple design that I could cut out myself, I could try to make this card. Thanks for showing us this card! I really like it.

  5. Hi Sistah!
    Just wanted to say how much I LOVE the card design on this one! Very unique! We are ALWAYS looking for something “different” and this one fits the bill! Love that someone else asked about measurements in inches, too! Might be nice to ALWAYS include those! (Just sayin’!) Thanks again n’ HAPPY CREATING! :-))
