The dimensions will vary depending on what stamps you end up using. My first color blocking was with the Basket Full of Fun set. What I did with each one decide the center piece width, then what width the left and right will be. Then take the total of your background piece - (in this case it is the black) subtract 1/8" for the space between each piece with the size of the stamp you are using to fit. I did it all on the grid paper ruler. My friend Judy and I were making it at the same time but she did her figuring totally different and we both ended up with the same measurements. Both cards were a bit different. If I hadn't already mailed them I could just measure and tell you but I don't physically have either one of them anymore. Hope that helps! It is a bit time intensive but fun and soooo pretty! I have seen them with white behind the blocks and other colors too but I love the black the best!
