It's Tricia here at Club Scrap, and Happy World Cardmaking Day!
I love taking these Operation Write Home Sketches and making clever cutting formulas for them. I've been sticking with 8.5x11 papers, 'cuz I know a lot of you cardmakers out there primarily use that size.
Anyhoo--my cutting formula for Sketch #90 contained a few extra pieces, so I was able to create a second set of cards in a jiffy. This one yields EIGHT cards. Four for Sketch #90, and four for the offspring. :)
You'll need some stuff:
(2) 8.5x11 Paper A
(2) 8.5x11 Paper B
8.5x11 Paper C
12" Paper Trimmer
Scoring Tool and Bone Folder
Inks and Stamps
Here's the recipe:
Trim one each of 8.5x11 Paper A, B, C and D horizontally at 10.25, 8.75 and 5.5". Cut the 3.25x8.5 horizontally at 6.75 and 4.5". Trim the 1.5x8.5 horizontally at 5.5". Cut the .75x8.5 horizontally at 8.25 and 4.25". Score and fold each 5.5x8.5 horizontally at 4.25".
Cut the remaining 8.5x11 Paper A and B horizontally at 5.5". Score and fold each 5.5x8.5 horizontally at 4.25". (But if you're like me, you can first score the 8.5x11 sheet vertically at 4.25", and then trim horizontally at 5.5". Score once; cut once!) This step will give you the four extra card bases for the sketch #90 babies.
Peacock unmounted stamps. I only used a white and black inkpad along with the gorgeous colors of the Peacock paper collection. Yummy!
