Card Portfolio Template

If you make a card with a lot of embellishments which you don't want smashed into a flat envelope, this gusseted Card Portfolio is for you! It will also hold about six hand-made cards and envelopes—a lovely gift for a loved one! Check out the sample at the bottom of this page.

Tip: Depending on your printer's capabilities, you will probably have to enlarge the template by hand or using a copier. I designed it for cards that are one-quarter of a standard (8.5 x 11) sheet of paper, but it is easy to reduce or enlarge the template for any size card. Simply make the two large rectangles the measurement of your card (or envelope), plus 1/8 inch on each side. Widen the flap accordingly. The other sides (gussets) should stay the same width.

Design idea: Cut Card Portfolio out of freezer paper, and iron your favorite fancy napkin or tissue wrapping paper to the shiny side. (Make sure that you are using only one ply of the napkin!) Use this as the inside of the portfolio—decorate the outside with lovely stamped images and a nice ribbon. It will make a lovely presentation for your beautiful art cards!
