I started out making A2, but 99% of mine now are 7 x 5. I can add more "bling" to the space.

 

What card sizes do you make the most?

Mostly A2 still.  It's the most efficient use of paper.  Sometimes I do a square card.

Pretty much all A2 unless I need a large card for a specific purpose (e.g., need room for lots of signatures).

A6 - I like the small size. Other times I create on a 6x6 square card

I stick with A2 because it's easier to find envelopes for those.  Do any of you have a great source for those larger sized envelopes?

I have an envelope punch board and I love it and make most of my cards. But I have also bought the bigger premade envelopes at Wal-mart.

I usually make A7 cards.  Just started making A2 cards to use up my smaller pieces of scraps  :)

I mostly make A2 size, but will make larger cards if I make one for a co-worker that I have everyone sign.

I prefer a2. I have some 5x7 but don't like to use them, I really prefer the smaller canvas. In fact, I think I'm just going to embrace it and sell my 5x7 cards and bigger envelopes in my LSS's garage sale in August.

A2 because I can have 3 cards from one 12 by 12 sheet. :) And easy to find cheap envelopes. :D

I do a fair amount of A2. But also love to do 5x7, and shaped cards that vary in size. It really just depends on what & why I'm making it in the first place.

6x6 :-)
I don't mind fuzzy cutting, but don't get me started on watching glue dry!

A2 size cards are my standard. I also make small 3x3 cards to put with a small gift I'm giving someone.

I prefer 5x7 size although I do make a number of A2's.  I also like to do 5x5 squares.  If I'm giving a gift I like to do pretty tags attached inscribed on the back

I've always made 5.5x4.25 (letter size sheet cut in half then folded) - is that a2?

Same here, I like that size because I can get two card bases out of one 8.5x11 cardstock.

And I was also wondering what is A2, now I'll have to go google card sizes :-)

I'd probably only do a square card if I would give it in person, so I don't have to pay extra postage.

A2 refers to two different things, a card made by a half letter sheet OR a large sheet of paper in the A-series of paper sizes.
