So my basic measurements are to fit a card in a standard envelope as most of my christmas cards are posted. Although I think these will all get sent with a plain piece of paper in the envelope to stop them getting bent in transport.
- DSP 51/2" circle
Fold the base in half and cut the dsp layer in half. I tended to make 2 of these at a time, as the sizes mean that 2 6" fit in 1 A4 sheet and I circle DSP makes 2 cards anyway. Although I am terrible at changing things and no 2 cards are quite the same :)
Then fold the center of the cut down to create the step.
With the DSP I then cut out a 'wedge' making it 1/4" bigger, so 2 3/4" by 1 3/4". This creates a nice border. To have the same on the wedge on the back of the step, I turn over the dsp which nicely lines up the round edge and I cut 1/2" off the top so that it has a border too.
Now its time to decorate!! Here's one of mine :)
