The paper is pearlescent and has a gorgeous shine to it. The paper shimmers in the light and has a beautiful soft sparkle.
When designing, it is always good to remember that darker colors may rub off on lighter colors. We suggest that you consider using a layer (such as tissue) between the different colors.
The inside portion of the card is 5 1/8" x 7". You can have any of our papers cut to 5" x 6 7/8" to fit as an insert inside the petal card. NOTE that the recommended insert cutting size (5" x 6 7/8") is 1/8" smaller than the inside size (5 1/8" x 7") of the petal card in order to fit appropriately.
- The flaps can be folded in an interlocked style to create a petal effect (see Pictures)
- The bottom 3 flaps can also be glued together to create a pocket and use the top as a flap (see Pictures)
Please note that petal cards are sent UNFOLDED and glue is not supplied for creating pockets. The 4 flaps are scored for easy folding.
When folded, the card will fit perfectly into an A7 envelope, most cards have a matching envelope. When unfolded, the card is 10 1/4" on the shorter side and 14" on the longer side from the ends of each flap.
Due to the unfolded size and the paper being extra heavy weight cardstock, it is NOT compatible with most home printers. If you need printing directly on the card, please contact a local print shop.
