Just for your information...

"Business Envelopes" in the most common sizes are:

#10 Measures 4-1/8 x 9-1/2 inches. This size is used by businesses to send out information, bills, etc...that include return envelopes. Obviously a return envelope needs to be a little bit smaller to fit inside this envelope.

#9 Measures 3-7/8 x 8-7/8 inches. This size is the return envelope that goes inside the #10 above.

BOTH of these sizes will hold letter-sized (8-1/2 x 11) paper folded in thirds or legal-sized (8-1/2 x 14) paper folded in fourths.

There is also this envelope that is very commonly used:

#6-3/4 Measures 3-5/8 x 6-1/2 inches. This would be what I would call a "check" size or because a personal check would fit without folding. It is usually labeled as "all-purpose" on the box. A letter-sized sheet of paper would be folded in half then in thirds to fit in this envelope.

The maximum size for anything that you want to put in an envelope is usually 1/4 inch smaller than these sizes.

I just found a video that I think is helpful in making your own envelope.

Ha! Lisa, I was just coming here to post the youtube video you posted. And here’s her blog and link to templates.
Jenny Card Designs: Slimline Cards! Inspiration Plus Links To FREEBIES to Create Your Own Design Template Book!

And here’s a calculator for the Envelope Punch Board or 123 Punch Board for sizes not printed on the board: http://crafterskey.blogspot.com/p/calculator.html

I use the Envelope Punch Board for many cards. It does have measurements on the board itself for a 3.5x8.5” card.

I always find it amusing when I see Americans come up with a new concept, that we've had here in the UK and Europe for ages.
We've been making DL cards for ages (DL means double length, so they are twice as tall as they are wide, usually 10.5cm x 21cm).

The same happened with peel-offs. We had them and fell out of love with them when stamps really took off as they are only single use compared to stamps....and then suddenly they started appearing on US YouTube videos as the new best thing since sliced bread.

I'm sure the reverse happens as well. I'm sure we discover stuff you've had for ages as well, and UK companies package it as the next new best thing!!!! 😂😂

However, I do like that companies are designing products to facilitate using the slimline cards as I always found them difficult to decorate unless you had a long thin image.

I have a SU stamp set called Summer Sunflower, that has the year 2000 on it. It i quite large and long. I have made very few A-2 sized cards with it, but have used it to fit in the long business envelopes since way back then. I have several others like that, but since I just used it, it was on my mind.

I noticed today that there's a couple of stamping companies that have recently (or very recently) come out with stamp pads that are made with firm foam instead of felt pads. The talk is that "this is new" and "you have to try this"...and Stampin' Up! has had them for 8 years now!

the leafy frame from Trinity stamps ( also has some loose leaves and blooms you can wiggle in if you wanted to)CC799 Just Because by JBgreendawn - at Splitcoaststampers

and the straight stitched ( and angled stitched) ones from PinkFresh
IC757 you never age by JBgreendawn - at Splitcoaststampers

I have not used the angled stitched one yet but, I am getting emails about all the newer ones out a lot lately so, its probably just a matter of time before I cave on a window one.

I've ordered the Lawn Fawn dies (with sliders) and their hillside dies made for slimline cards.

An all-time favorite slimline card:
Hello and welcome! by Angelnorth - at Splitcoaststampers

Slimline cards are scattered throughout the gallery, though not necessarily keyworded as such. I think they’ve been around a very long time, including in the U.S., but trends come and go, and what’s old is new again. Clothing, furniture, colors, card styles.

Gina Marie's slimline dies are BACK IN STOCK. When I tried to order on my laptop, my payment never went through so I ordered from my phone and it went through fine. I'm sure these will sell out again so order soon <>.

Thank you so much for the calculator link! The Jenvelope templates for envelopes are great and I've used up lots of my 12x12 patterned paper making envelopes for these cards.
I've enjoyed getting back into slimline cards using whatever supplies I feel like - I used to make them and then just forgot about them for a while!

That is a very tiny slimline card! It's a scrapling. So gorgeous! TFS!
