Easy card/envelope tip!

You know what drives me crazy??
I get so annoyed when I go to mail a card I've made and I can't find an envelope to fit!
I try to make standard sized cards, but I am always running out of standard sized envelopes.
You now what I do have a ton of though??
I do have tons of these ugly legal-sized envelopes!

These legal-sized envelopes measure about
4 inches wide x 9 1/2 inches tall.

And now I think I will make cards to fit these envelopes!!

To make a card to fit, I cut a piece of black cardstock
8 inches wide x 9 inches tall.
Then I folded it in half to make a card measuring
4 inches wide x 9 inches tall.

Then I pulled out my Study Hall kit to decorate the front of the card.

When I am done, I have a pretty card that fits perfectly into
my legal-sized envelope!

So if you are like me and always run out of your smaller, cute envelopes, try changing up the sizes of your cards to fit the envelopes you do have!
Just something to think about!
Have a great day!
