3 Slim Card Base & Envelope Size Examples + Flamingo Process

Hello.  For Technique Time at Unity, I am showing three slim card base & envelope size examples.  Plus I show the full flamingo card process.

Sentiment:  I'm tickled pink that we are friends.

Creating slim style cards can be made in different sizes and with different envelopes.

Here are the sizes that I use most often for slimline card bases & envelopes.  Please reference the video for the process and details for this project.

First, 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, 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, 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″

The card base and envelope examples were made using envelopes that I happen to have on hand.  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.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
