Quarter Cards

June 16, 2016

Today I would like to share with you the possibilities when layering a quarter card 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I am going to show you a sample and explain the sizes.
The card starts with the base card, dark pink, being 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". The next layer, brown, is 1/4" smaller, making it 4" x 5 1/4". The top printed layer is again 1/4" smaller than the brown, making it 
3 3/4" x 5". 

Now the card above just used two of the layers: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and 3 3/4" x 5",  giving you a wider border between the two papers. 

Most of the layers work in 1/4" increments.  Let's look at this chart I have made for you:

5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
5 1/4" x 4"
5" x 3 3/4"
4 3/4" x 3 1/2"

Thank you for joining me for Thursday's Techniques.  If you have any questions, please feel free contact me.  Be sure to check with us again next week for a new tip.
