Good Morning! Thank you for joining me this morning for my Coffee & Cards. I know that 7 am is super early for some of you and that's ok - it's early for me, too! You can always catch my video here on the blog, on my YouTube channel, or over on my Facebook Page after the live crafting session.
Last week on Coffee & Cards, I shared how to create layers with 1/4" borders. Today, I shared how to create the same simple layering but with 1/8" border. Here are the measurements I used today:
When I started card making, knowing the size of the layers was of the card was the hardest part for me. I would search high and low for tutorials that included all the measurements so I could learn. And that's why, every day, I include a full tutorial here for you. I don't ever want anyone to say, "I really liked Michelle's card, but I just don't know how to recreate it."
Today's Card features the A Good Man (from the new catalog - available June 4) and Beauty Abounds Stamp Sets. The A Good Man Stamp Set is perfect for coloring with our Stampin' Blends, too!

Today's Coffee and Cards Facebook Live took us back to basic card making. When you first begin paper crafting, the hardest part - at least for me - was knowing the measurements. Knowing not only the numbers and proportions, but also how to maximize and not waste paper was crucial to my happiness and success as a paper crafter. And that's really the brainchild behind Coffee & Cards. It's weekly back-to-basics online class for paper crafters of all levels.
Today, we focused on cutting basic card layers with a 1/4" margin using the new Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper (available June 3). When using a 1/4" margin, you simply keep your proportions for the layers the same, subtracting 1/4" from length and width with each subsequently smaller layer. A 6-layer card for example, would have the following proportions:
