A-Frame Card

Okay, I have to admit that I feel kind of sheepish making a full tutorial about these types of cards since they are so basic to make, but hey, I'm whole heartedly committed to the cause!


1. Begin with an A4 sized piece of cardstock. Cut the cardstock in half longways so that you are left with two long strips. (I'm fairly sure that "A4" is not an internationally recognised paper size, but the measurements are approximately 21cm x 29cm or 8¼" x 11¾").



2. Now score and fold the cardstock in half so that it resembles an A-Frame or a sandwich board.

3. Decorate as desired.

Lovely card.
Yes, the measurements are always such a welcome bit of information. I still struggle with wondering what size a lot of the gals are using for their card. A6 or A4 doesn't make much sense to some people (me) and so the measurements in inches or centimeters is great.

I have just been browsing your blog and I must say, I really love your style of cardmaking. I'm sure all of your tutorials are very helpful to a lot of people out there. Thanks also for the digis. They are lovely, too. BTW, A4 is a standard paper format mainly in Europe and Japan (based on ISO 216), so it's a good thing you mentioned the measurements as well.

You told that A4 is not an internationally recognised paper size.

Please look at http://papersize.org.uk/ for the internationally recognised paper size inclusive A4.
