I should also tell you that convention is coming in two weeks, and that week, I think ALL of us will be in Salt Lake City taking in the newest products and techniques at the stampin up yearly convention. Please be patient if the post is late that week :)
So ~ Let's get down to measurements! Here is one interpretation of how the measurements could work for this card.
Layer 1: Start by taking a piece of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock, score it down the middle at 4 1/4". Then turn your paper and cut at 5 1/2"
Note: by scoring first, you yield two card bases that are scored. If you're doing a lot of cards this saves you some work by getting half of the scoring out of the way.
Layer 2: Cut your second layer 5 1/4" x 4 and layer it on top of your "base" layer
Layer 3: Try using DSP (designer series paper) for this layer. If you start with a 12 x 12, and cut at 5 1/4" then you can cut at one inch intervals. One piece of 12 x 12 would yield about 26 (1" x 5 1/4") pieces. This is a great value!
For your focal point, the size of layers 4 and 5 will depend on your stamp size. Again, try measuring your block of wood for your top layer, then make a matte for it that's a 1/4" bigger on two sides (to make an 1/8"th of an inch border) For example if your wood measures 3" x 2 3/4". that would be your #5 layer, and then, your 4th layer would be 3 1/4" x 3". I hope that makes sense! :) Here's what our operators are up to this morning.
