Card Sizes : 

The standard size for handmade cards in the US and Canada is one-quarter of an 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of card stock. 8-1/2″ x 11″ is commonly called “letter size”. You can achieve the standard size of card base by cutting a letter size piece of card stock in half, and then folding it in half.
Cardstock: Stiff, smooth, and thin, it straddles the line between paper and cardboard. Good for greeting cards, paper models, and other stand-up building projects. Construction paper: Soft, rough, and often brightly colored, it's not as stiff as cardstock but still good for kids' pop-up cards and other 3D crafts
