Long orange flower card

A rather feminine, multi-purpose card, quick to make - in theory at least. Designing it took a little longer as I was not used to the proportions of this tall narrow card size.

Since I couldn't walk past this set of glossy card blanks in four cheerful colours, I am going to try my hands on this format more often.

I still think trying out a new card shape is worth the effort for the sake of variety in the display - these cards should quite literally stand out.
