Remember the tall cards, well this week we’re doing ‘little tall cards’ as I call them.

Cut your cardstock 6 1/4” on the long side and 7” on the short. Score and fold at 3 1/2”. Card front is 3 1/2” by 6 1/4”.

Left over piece is 4 3/4” by 8 1/2” which is just a half inch longer than the square card Andrea posted for week 53. Take a half inch off if you want a perfect square card.
If you choose to make a card with this piece link it to SC53 so we can all take a look. I stay subscribed to all challenges I participate in.

I used the scrap from cutting the larger piece in my card as you’ll see so there is very little waste!
Envelope size: commercial - writing stationary - 3 5/8” X 6 ½”.
This size is easy to find and very inexpensive.

Feel free to design your card anyway you wish, just like we did the tall cards. The main objective here is a new size and shape.

The inspiration for this card comes from seewah who is the first person I’ve seen doing this size. Thanks Sarah for the inspiration!


I later saw this one from Jami and it’s a cute little number designed the long way. Jami’s is cut ¼” wider and she used a SU template for her envelope. Her size is a tad to big for the commercial - writing stationary envy to close properly.

Have fun and I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
