You can click on the link above to see how Dawn assembled her square card and get all her measurements. If you want to make it an A2 size card, here's what you'll need to cut.
Base cardstock: cut 1 piece 11 x 4 /14" score this piece at 2 3/4" across the
cut 1 piece 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" score this piece at 2 1/8" across the
Fold the scored piece to the center of the card stock. Then, fold the opposite end in to meet the edge of the scored section.. You need to use a bone folder to get a crisp edge so the card will lay flat when assembled and the front sections are tucked inside.
This will make perfect sense to you after you watch her video!
Lining: cut 1 piece of cardstock 5 1/4 x 4"
cut 1 piece of cardstock 5 x 3 3/4" this will be your area for your
Lay the two pieces of base cardstock across each other in the shape of a + sign and attach them using adhesive. Then just layer the lining pieces and attach them to the inside.
Fold the outer pieces just like you would if you were closing up a cardboard box.
Embellish the front however you choose and add your sentiment.

It was fun to challenge myself to make this style of card. I make so many A2 sized ones that I tend to think only in terms of what will fit onto that size. This isn't a card that I'd make tons of to send to OWH, but it was a nice change of pace this afternoon. Wouldn't it make a fun Easter card for a child with something special inside?
