Card Inserts

Good Afternoon everyone!

Another beautiful day here in Northern Michigan! We are getting spoiled. Although last night it got below freezing temperatures here and my hubby was worried about the two tomato plants he purchased this past weekend. But all is well. He just didn't believe me when I told him we were going to be getting some frosty temperatures. Maybe he will listen now.....NOT!

The topic I would like to discuss today in this post is "Card Inserts". I don't know how many of you card makers out there put inserts in their cards, but I am not one of them.... until now. It has been something I have wanted to try. First of all, I am a fool when it comes to setting up my word program and setting the tabs where they should be. I posted to the groups I belong to a request this morning for an A4 insert template. This to me is so confusing. There are many types and sizes of papers around the world and choosing the one I needed I had to "google" for it to get the information.

This is what Wikipedia said about it...

There have been many standard sizes of paper at different times and in different countries, but today there are two widespread systems in use: the international standard (A4 and its siblings) and the North American sizes.
I find that the A4 is the closest to what I need when I make my 1/4 fold cards. I would like to hear what the rest of you use or how you go about putting sentiments in your cards. I have wanted to just print it on the inside of the cardstock before I make my card, but not word processor savvy enough to know how to do it.
Here is the link for more information on paper sizes. You choose.
Until next time, happy cardmaking and stay creative!
