Hello, Gaylynn here. For Technique Time, I am showing three slim card base & envelope size examples. Plus I show the full flamingo card process.
Creating tall or slim card base & envelope size projects can be made custom style to fit either your envelope size or to match your cut sizes.
Sentiment: I’m tickled pink that we are friends.
Here are the sizes that I used on the three slim card base & envelope examples. Please reference the video for the process and details for this project.
First card, largest:
Envelope #10 size 4 1/8″ x 9 1/2″
Card base cut 9 1/4″ x 8″, Score on short end at 4″
Card size 9 1/4″ x 4″
Second card, medium:
Envelope size 4 1/8″ x 9″
Card base cut 7 1/2″ x 7 1/2″, Score at 3 3/4″
Card size 7 1/2″ x 3 3/4″
Third card, smallest
Envelope size 3 7/8″ x 7 1/2″
Card base cut 7 1/4″ x 7 1/4″, Score at 3 5/8″
Card size 7 1/4″ x 3 5/8″
For card base sizes, I like to begin with the envelope size first. Then, I cut the card base a bit smaller than the envelope size. Next, I choose dies that fit best onto the trimmed card front. Finally, dies are not necessary. A paper trimmer can be used to trim the desired card base and the layers.
Here is another look:
