The essential factor here is that your printer be able to print this paper
size. If it cannot, then you won't be able to print it by any method. If it
can print the size but doesn't have a definition for it (unlikely), then
you'll have to set the card up on some other size that is defined, adjusting
the margins (and feeding the card) accordingly. If the printer can't handle
this size, then you can get Avery cardstock (or the equivalent) that has
several (preperfed) 3" x 5" cards on a sheet of Letter-sized stock.

It can do the 3" x 5" index cards but the problem I get is that it doesn't
print the correct way, no matter if I do landscaping and or text direction it
still prints it as if it were set upright (longways fed) into the printer...
Thank you for your information thus far, it's appreciated

If the card is fed crosswise, set the orientation to Portrait with 3" height
and 5" width. If is fed lengthwise, set it to Landscape with the same
dimensions.

Word assumes that Portrait means height greater than width and the reverse
for Landscape, and of course we humans do the same; it's quite natural. But
you have to think outside the box when you have a printer that makes you
feed "landscape" documents in a "portrait" orientation.
