Master Thread

Okay, here is the challenge for this week! It is definitely going to be something different for me and I hope it is something different, or a challenge, for you! The inspiration for this week's sketch came from a card done by nuttnhoney (this link is a more recent upload, the original is an attachment below) one of my absolute favorite stampers. So, you guessed it, we are making LEGAL SIZE cards this week

Here are some directions on making the card base. Take your 8.5 x ll inches cardstock and cut 2 inches off the length. Cut ..5 inches off the width of the cardstock. So you will end up with a piece of cardstock 9 x 8 inches - these are the corrected dimensions!

edited to fix my goofy math :oops: Sorry about that. I hope I didn't mess up too many people's cards :( I posted this at 5 am this morning after only having slept for about 2 hours. I promise I won't do that again!

Here is a link to the sketch in my gallery: http://gallery.splitcoaststampers.co...cat=500&page=1 I couldn’t get the legal sized card to the right dimensions to put it in this post.

Here are some directions on making the card base. Take your 8.5xll cardstock and cut 1.5 inches off the length. Cut .25 inches off the width of the cardstock. So you will end up with a piece of cardstock 10x8.25 inches.

All I'm getting is the sketch and not the original post.

I cannot wait to get started on this challenge...it looks like so much fun.

Andrea, you are on the ball getting the challenge up so early!!!!

Thanks for hosting this.

mamakimberly 04-06-2005 08:55 AM

I really liked this sketch! I didn't follow it to a "t" but that's okay... I did make a long card, and I think that was the basic gist of the sketch anyway, right??

I needed a card for my husband's coworker who is having a baby, and they ALL sign the card, so this worked great! More room for more people to sign :)

Here's my take on it:

TFL!

11Valerie11 04-06-2005 02:39 PM

I followed the measurement instructions, what size envie does this fit, my business size envelopes measure just 9.50 x 4.25, so this is card too big. Is there another size out there for this size card, or do we make our own envie?

TIA,
Valerie

11Valerie11 04-06-2005 03:29 PM

I followed the measurement instructions, and cut my paper down to the last listed dimensions which are 10 x 8.25. But, if I follow the written ones, then it should be 9.50 X 8.25 right? Taking 1.5 off 11 would be 9.5. Not to be so anal, just trying to figure it out. Anyway, my point is now this...........what size envie does this fit, my long business size one is too small, do we make our own? And does anyone know about mailing, I am guessing it will cost more to mail now, right?
TIA,
Valerie

Valerie, I think the idea was to make a card that fits in the #10 size business envelope (regular size). I think there is a math error/typo in the size because it would be 8.25 x 9.5

I just measured the business envelope and it's about 4 x 9.5 so I'm going to make my cards a little smaller so that they fit in the envelope. (I'm too lazy to make my own!)

I'm making my cardstock 8 x 9 so that the folded card is 4 x 9 and fits perfectly in the regular envelope.

11Valerie11 04-06-2005 04:05 PM

Too late for me, I already made it, and it doesn't fit, :cry: Wahhhh, so I guess I'm making a special envie, or finding a different something or other to mail it in. I made it special for someone and it can't be hand delivered, unless I get on a plane.............and I also measured my #10s and came up with the same size as you, which the card still wouldn't fit, even with the corrected measurements.

Thanks!
Valerie
