Next, draw a 23 cm (9 in) long and 17 cm (6.75 in) wide rectangle. This size can vary according to what you're going to use. To create this postcard, we've used the typical 176 x120mm (70x47.5 in) rectangle envelope as a template so it can fit in it later. Once you've drawn the rectangle, draw a dotted line exactly in the center like you can see in the image.
