EXCITING UPDATE!! I am now selling sets of these cards, FINISHED FOR YOU, on etsy! If you like the look of these cards, but don't like the work you have to put into them, you can purchase them HERE at my etsy shop!

When printing the 8.5x11 PDF file, make sure to print at 100%. Don't select any reduce/shrink to fit options. This will result in your cards being too small, and the cutting instructions won't work.
The cards are set up to be 8.25" x 5.25" flat and 4.125" x 5.25" when folded. These will fit in a standard A2 envelope, but are slightly smaller than normal A2s. This is the only way you can get 2-per page and have the lines bleed off the front of the card.
After you have printed your pages (see above for printing tip), you will cut .25" off the top, right and bottom edges, then cut each card to 5.25" tall. If your printer shifts the paper at all when printing, you may need to eyeball your cutting so the lines bleed.
I have placed small gray circles to the left of the red lines to use as guides for 3-hole punching. When putting mine together I folded them first, then punched through both layers with a Crop-A-Dile.
The horizontal lines will wrap around to the back of the card when folded. This is to make sure the lines bleed off the left edge of the card front.
After folding you can round the corners if you choose. When making mine, I rounded only the 2 right corners, leaving the folded edge alone.
