Tamatha: Hey guys Maymay has started a new series to help answer all those card making questions. Today is the first video in the series. So grab a cuppa cuppa and enjoy!
Maymay : I love card making and teaching others to make cards. In this "series" I will discuss card making and hopefully answer lots of your questions.
Today we discuss A2 card bases and borders. I find that once you understand how to create a base for your card you can go anywhere with that. For A2 cards, cutting a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of card stock in half either way will get you two bases that are 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 when folded.
Then for borders, the trick is cutting your paper smaller than the base it is going on and then centering it to reveal your border. So if we cut a layer that is 1/4 of an inch shorter on two sides we get a 1/8 of an inch border.
So this is hopefully a good start, keep a watch on Tuesdays as we dive into card making.
