Default Tall Skinny Cards

Someone wants me to make them invitations that are tall and skinny and fit in a regular envelope. Does anyone have any great examples of one of these? I am struggling with the layout. The only thing I have to go on is: use a silver dollar or something nautical.

i make tally cards for my euchre group every month and alot of times i find an inspiration layout or actual card and size it down to 3x4.

you could try that. or have you tried just putting 3x6 in the search in the gallery to find a layout or card you like?

we made some that size this month at card club. can get 4 out of a 12x12.

i have a feeling this size card will gain popularity because it's something different and the envelopes are so much cheaper.

good luck and happy stamping!

One of my favorite card sizes is 3.5x6, and they fit in the inexpensive envelopes. I can make 2 of the 3.5x6 cards from 1 sheet of 12x12 cardstock, then I make gift/mini cards that are 3x5 with the remaining paper. Or use it for layering.

For my wedding I used this size. It was a trifold card that was cut on an angle on each side so when you looked at it you saw a stamped image. The outside if the card had a wide ribbon and a smaller ribbon on top of the larger ribbon. When you opened the card it gave all the wedding info on vellum and under the vellum was a picture of our wedding site. One thing that helped me was looking up wedding invitations on google or on knot. Hope this helps.

If you check out the gallery (search: tall cards) you might find examples...
