  1. I LOVE this card, Mary! The layering of these homes is perfect, but it’s the diagonal panel that really makes me smile. LOVE IT!

    So not a folded card?

    • I was thinking that too, but I’m pretty sure the measurements would be 8½ by 8 scored at 4 on the 8″ side. I could be wrong but that’s what I think.

    • Begin with an 8 1/2 x 8 piece of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Score and fold at 4″ on the 8″ side, resulting in a card base of 8 1/2 x 4.

    Oh!! what a sweet card, Mary, those little houses are adorable and the slimline style helps to showcase them beautifully.
    Thank you for sharing the dimensions and the template for the envelope, comes in really handy.
    In the past, I’ve made long envelopes by carefully ungluing a business-size envelope, tracing around it, and trying to get the folds correctly but I can never get them straight enough.
    Stay healthy and safe.
