Card Sketch Inspiration - Basic Layouts/Template # 1

Published on 24 September 2023 at 09:00

Do you ever just get stuck with designing new layouts?  Well, hang on to your hat!  I have the perfect fix for that!  I have an entire shoebox full of different card templates/sketches to share with you.  The first, is so simple and really helps to inspire creativity.





Base:  5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored @ 4 1/4

Mat Layer.  5 3/8" x 4 1/8"

Border strip mat:  1" x 4"

Strip 3/4" x 4"

Rectangles Layer 1 7/8" x 5 (x2)

Ovals from punches or dies






To make your template:  Use scraps and it doesn't have to match or look beautiful; it is a tool to help you with a jump off point to create your card.

I write all the dimensions on the back of the template.
