Meg, the envelopes you found stashed in your closet sound perfect for these pink cards we have been making. I have a whole drawer full of envelopes in various sizes. Most of them are too big for A2 size but I keep thinking I will make a larger card some day.
I will have to look and see if I can change my settings somewhere on Splitcoast to see if that will adjust the time it says I post.
Not sure if you send cards to older folks or anyone who might have lower mobility or a stroke. I use larger envelopes for those people but keep the card the same size. I usually also write any message on a slip of paper and include a envelope for the card if it's going to my gma. She then can use the card herself.
ANyway she's had a few strokes and can't get tight fitting mail out of the envelopes herself but a regualr sized card in the next size up envie works great.
