Making the Basic Card

I thought maybe you would like to know how to make the basic blank card to embellish.  It took me a little bit to figure it out.

Take a piece of 8-1/2 x 11 inch cardstock and turn it sideways so that it is wider than tall.  You want to cut this in half so that you no have two pieces of cardstock each 8-1/2" x 5-1/2".

Fold them in half, using a bone folder, if you have one or if not creasing the fold crisply with your fingernail.

You now have a basic card blank that is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".

These card blanks will fit in Invitation Envelopes which are available at Wal-Mart or at office supply stores.  Invitation Envelopes are 4-3/4" x 6-1/2" in size.
