These papers are gorgeous but not really practical for card making, unless you don't plan on adding any embellishments. Since I already have them don't want them to go to waste, I just cut the sheet down to the size I need. However, Crafter's Companion has Enchanted Forest papers that I use on a regular basis. I prefer them for card making because there is plenty of room for adding embellishments without taking away from the background paper. They come in 8X8 and 6x6 sizes.
