Hot July is Here! Card Prep Time

July 11, 2019



WoW is it hot but I am creating.  how about you?


Humidity has gone down.   Yeah!   It is not good for paper crafting. 

Do you have that problem.

I just can not handle high humidity.   My Arthritis is not happy and my hands swell so I can not do a thing.  Truly a pain.


I Prep...make card bases.  Yes, lots of Whisper White and  Vanilla. With back bases of color paper...especially black.


I also make many flat bases of black.   I take a piece of 8-1/2 x 11 card stock and cut into 4 pieces.   You get 4 pieces of 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".  You use this as a backing for a quick card.   How you say?  You cut the main card smaller.  I take a whisper white cut 1/2" off each side...so 8-1/2" x 11" card stock becomes 8" x 10-1/2".   I than cut that into 2 pieces of 8" x 5-1/4"....Score each piece at 4".


Yes, I do not make one card at a time, I make many of the same.  Like in quilting when you make blocks,  you chain make cards and you always have extra, ready to use.
