A D.L Card

For the next two weeks at My Time To Craft we are challenging you to make a D.L card. A what? Do I hear you say? At one time DL cards were very popular in the UK but seem to have fallen out of favour, I would like to see them around again. What is a DL? I have heard varied explanations but for me it is simply - Double the Length, My card measures 3.5 inches wide so is 7 inches long. You can also make them smaller or bigger, as long as the length is double the width. They can be used either portrait or landscape wise.  I used Craftwork Cards papers from their Vogue collection. I added from my stash, a button, a few hat pins and some lace. These cards are neat and easy to make and yet I think look elegant. If this is your first DL, I hope you enjoy and if not then you will hopefully regain the pleasure of using one again. I look forward to visiting you, please pop and see the DL cards made by the DT they are amazing, so creative.


  1. Hi Caz - what a gorgeous and elegant card! LOVE how you explained what a DL is. I looked up the dimensions on google and it said 4.4 x 8.8 inches. It never occurred to me that the length is double the width until I read your post. Doh! Pure awesome creation friend! Hugs D

  2. WOW Caz I love this card its brilliant, Loving the vintage feel, Love Hazelxx

  3. I often wonder why card sizes and shapes come and go out of fashion - this is a great DL card. Thanks too for the explanation about length = double width, logical really when you think about it.

  4. This is just gorgeous hun, love the vintagey feel!
