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!

My first challenge in a couple of weeks (that I have uploaded anyway:oops:)

I really like this size card, now I just got to find some envelopes or wait for my new envelope template to arrive!


seewah 03-01-2006 07:09 AM

Here is one my mom (jacobsgram) did on Sunday ... but just uploaded this morning! :)

Hello Spring

craftycacky 03-01-2006 07:17 AM

This is a fun size - I'll have to make more of these! Thanks Rox!


Barbra1224 03-01-2006 07:18 AM

Here's mine. I love this card size! Thanks again Rox! :D

Easter Bunny

jacobsgram 03-01-2006 07:21 AM

jacobsgram SC61 hello spring
Here's my first attempt at a card sketch challenge. The funny thing is that I was inspired by this design and card size before it was on SCS -- my daughter, Sarah, showed me several of the cards she has done in that size so this past Sunday afternoon I tried one too. Didn't know it was going to be today's challenge!


I'm all about shades of green and purple right now -- seems to be comforting to me! Maybe because I think of Easter with those colors ... Easter makes me think of Spring ... Spring makes me happy because we're all so ready for winter to be over this year!

With a new "SPRING" in my step,

Jami 03-01-2006 07:26 AM

I'm so excited - thanks Rox for using my card along with Sarah's adorable cards as inspiration for the challenge. I am loving this size card an the new envie template. I have one ready to upload but it's for an SCSers b-day so I'll need to wait a few days. Maybe I'll just make another in the meantime.

debbiesun 03-01-2006 07:38 AM

What a great challenge. Love this new card size! Thanks Rox, you rock!


dtstampz 03-01-2006 07:44 AM

Here's mine done with Frosty. Okay, I know we should be doing spring cards, but I've had poor Frosty since November, and have not made a card with him yet! And I love these wintery papers from Chatterbox...Thanks for the challenge, Rox!

Pink-fish 03-01-2006 07:47 AM

This card size is awesome. I have finished one and I have another one inmy head. Hopefully I'll get to it this afternoon!
Here's my first one:

Julia S 03-01-2006 07:54 AM

This is a wayyyy cute card size...thanks for the push. Now I just need to get the little boys better so that I can go buy some envies...they've been sick for 8 days now and I'm getting a little cabin fever!

Here is my first try and I'm sure not the last...



Mona Lisa 03-01-2006 07:58 AM

Hallellujah! I have at least 1000 of these envies!!!!! LOL

DH keeps asking if I need a few more with his tongue planted firmly in his cheek!

mellid 03-01-2006 08:04 AM

Here is my attempt

Pinky 03-01-2006 08:04 AM

Rox, I simply love this size card...my new favorite size...I turned this card sideways and it was so fast and simple to make. I cut it a tap smaller and matted the plum cs behind it. Love, love this size...


I will definitely be making more of these! Thanks Rox...you rock:)
