Happy Tuesday! I wanted to pop in with a card making quick reference that I think will help everyone, even the seasoned card maker.

We all live busy lives and if you are like me, there are some days that I am not even able to get into my craft room. And when I do get into the craft room I do not want to have to fiddle with measurements or second guess myself when it comes to cards bases, envelope sizes and score lines.

The same is true when it comes to card layers. How many times have you cut your card stock layers and it turns out it is the wrong size and you have to start all over again?

Well today I have some reference sheets that may help that you can save to your computer or even print out.

Card Layers

Card making quick reference for the basic card.

Here are measurements for a basic card right down to the stamped layer. But what if you want more layers or less space between layers. Well here is another sheet of measurements to end the guessing game.

Proportional card making quick reference

When it comes to proportional matting, I also cut index cards with 1/8″ difference in the layers so when I am deciding on my card layout, I can pull out those cards to see if the size I am thinking about is the size that I really want.

Next, have you ever wondered what size envelope you need for your card? You know the inches but you do not know the envelope name. Here is a card making quick reference to take the guess work out of that.

Envelope and card making quick reference.

How perfect are these references. These are just what the beginning card maker needs. It is also what us seasoned card makers can use to take the stress away when our card making time is limited.

Hope these reference sheets help you or someone you know.

Have a great Tuesday and I will see you tomorrow.
