Hi there! This post can also be viewed over at She’s a Sassy Lady blog. Thanks Sheila for having me over once a month.
Today I’m sharing a few 3 3/4 x 8 inches cards with basically the same images but each done up a little bit different. Why the odd measurement you asked? Well they were originally meant to fit into letter sized envelopes but as I decorated them they turned out to be a little (a lot, really) too bulky for them. No worries though because I was able to create envelopes for these bulky cards.
This project was designed using the Silhouette Studio using images purchased from the Silhouette Store. I started out by creating a base card measuring 7.49 x 8 inches (shown below in green). Then I centered a perforation in the middle of the base, where I would want the card folded in half. I created a mat for the front of the card (shown in pink) by sizing a rectangle 3.5 x 7.75 inches. For the front panels (shown as the black layer), I used the internal offset feature and sized them at 3.25 x 7.5 inches.
