I don't know about the size of the card but most police officers read directly from the card to prevent defendants later claiming that their rights were not "read" to them.
Its easier for the police officer testifying in court to present the card and state they read the rights directly from the card rather than testify that the informed the defendant of their rights based on their recollection of what was on the card.Its more difficult for a defense lawyer to create an issue when they can only question your ability to read from the card instead of your abililty than recall all of the rights listed on the card from memory.
