I'm confoozed. I think the NSD challenge is an A2 card but the dimensions are listed at 8.5x5.5 (I think those are right). I'm an idiot about card sizes that aren't already cut for me, so help the helpless! Do you take a 8.5x5.5 paper and then fold it in half?? Or is that the finished size?

Take an 8.5x11 paper and cut it in half. You'll then have two 8.5x5.5 papers. Fold each of them in half, and you have two A2 cards, 5.5x4.25. I only use 12x12 paper for scrapbooking, but I still buy up 8.5x11 paper when I see it on sale just to use for cards.

That's what I do. Use lots of 8.5 x 11 paper for cards. So easy to do.

Absolutely! I buy a good quality card stock in 8 1/2 X 11, cut in half then pair it with the A2 envelopes from the office supply store (or craft store for fancier envelopes), so much less expensive than buying precut cards.

Yep, fold it in half. I start with the 8.5x11 that the others mentioned. Well, I used to. I got lazy and these days buy the pre-folded cards.
