    • 5.5 x 7" cut of cardstock, score long side at 3.5"
    For a little more skinny, you can try a 3.5 x 6" card to fit a regular No. 6 3/4 envelope (the ones that are about the size of a personal check).  Use either of the following measurements, depending on where you want your fold.
    • 3.5 x 12" cut of cardstock, score long side at 6"
    • 6 x 7" cut of cardstock, score long side at 3.5"
