Here's another sketch for you to try on for size. I'm sure everyone is busy getting ready for the holiday. Hopefully you can take time out to stamp something beautiful using this clean and simple European style design.
I usually start by doing the measurements of the card on top.. Since I've already done the measurements for my card in another document, I'm just using what I've already written. :)
Measurements for Selene's red and White Card Below:
Layer 1: 11 x 4 ¼”, scored at 5 ½” and folded in half as your white base
Layer 2: 4 x 5 ¼” (real red)
Layer 3: Curly Label punched shape with thank you stamped and attached to layer 4.
Layer 4: 3 5/8” x 2 5/8”
Layer 5: 3 ½” x 2 ½”
Layer 6: 3 5/16” x 1 5/8”
Layer 7: 1 ½” x 3 ¼”
Layer 8: punched ornament with dimensionals underneath
WHEW!!! There's a lot of funky measurements on my card.. But that doesn't mean that you need to follow mine exactly. You could skip layers 4 and 6. The idea is NOT to stump you! These measurements are just a jumping off point. Go Create!!
Also ~ if you are having trouble knowing what 5/8" looks like on a ruler, check out this post by Lee Conrey on how to read a ruler. I know it sounds funny, but it makes life much easier if you are new to cutting these funky measurements. I still go back to it myself sometimes!
Never played before? Well, it's easy!
