Experienced card makers know that having good strong card bases go a long way towards a beautiful card. It can save you time and will give you perfect results every time. To efficiently create card after card, start with quality card stock.
I recommend Stampin’ Up! Basic white thick card stock.Product List
You get 24 sheets, which will make 48 card bases.
When you get your pack of card stock, prioritise that your next creative “me time” will be to chop every A4 sheet in half.
You can chop 12 sheets to make standard cards and 12 more sheets to make A-frame cards.
Begin by scoring 12 sheets at 10.5 cm and 12 more sheets at 14.8 cm.
On the 10.5 cm scored cardstock, turn and cut at 14.8 cm.
On the 14.8 cm scored card, turn and cut at 10.5 cm.
Continue until all sheets are scored and cut. Complete the card bases by folding along the score line and burnishing with a bone folder.
Watch the video below to watch how 48 card bases can be prepared in under 15 minutes!
Whenever you are ready to stamp, grab your card base supplies and get making.
You’ll have card bases ready to just grab and go, so you can stamp anywhere. (Watch how to organise your grab and go bag here).
