Grandma's Rocking Chair June 16 2023

Today's question: what is a good card size?

Most cards in the US are 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 or 5 1/2 by 4 1/4. You can make two cards by cutting a standard sheet of card stock in half making 2- 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 card bases and then folding them in half to make two cards.  Or even cut at 4 1/4 by 11 which gives you a tent card of 5 1/2 by 4 1/4.  These sizes use a standard A2 envelope a very common size envelope.

Another popular size card which I make a lot is a 3 x 3 card. They are to small to send through the mail but make a great card to attach to a gift or a small thank you card to give someone. You can make 8 out of a 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock. Envelope is a square 3 1/8 envelope.  Now that I have the simply score I make all of my own envelopes fast easy and they match nicely.

Thanks for the question. If you have a stamping or paper craft question just post it in the comments or e-mail me at nuhddad @ (remove the space around the @).

Happy stamping
