Okay, I have no clue about this type of stuff, but I hope someone can help you. What a cute idea!

For not-so-designy folks, I’m sure you could layout something like this pretty simply in Word or Powerpoint. Do you hope to print them yourself on your home printer, print them at a copy shop, or send them to a printer? This will dictate the maximum size you can make it. Download some fonts you love (try dafont.com), play around a bit, use some clip art, print a few samples, I have confidence in you!

Do you have PhotoShop? Or you could download gimp for free?

If your printer will let you print on 8.5×14″ cardstock I think that is your best bet.  You can get two prints per page, cutting along 14″ side.  Then you will need to trim 1 1/4″ off the bottom to get 4.25″ squares.  If you don’t want to trim the extra 1 1/4″ off the bottom you will have 4 2/3″ squares and will only be able to get one print per page.  You can use a paper cutter with a scoring blade, or a bone folder to get nice folds in the cardstock.  You can use 5″ square envelopes, which appear to be common.

Alternatively, catprint.com will do custom sized prints for a reasonable amount.

I would actually go with 11x 17 paper, and make your card 5×15″. This way it will fit into a standard 5.5″ square envelope.
