A template carte de visite explaining how to cut them to size and how to place them into an album.

Carte de visite 
The Isenburg Collection @ AMC Toronto

When carte de visite were new on the market directions were provided on how to place them in albums and this rare card is an example of that.
 
Directions
 
  Be careful to cut the Photographs to the exact size and shape of THIS CARD, so as to correspond with the space cut out to receive them.
  Should they be too long, they will swell one end of the Album and prevent it from clasping. To facilitate their removal, insert a paper cutter or broad bladed knife beneath the Card, so as to raise the lower edge, grasp them both with the thumb and fore-finger and withdraw the Card and knife at the same time.
