Standard A2 Cardbases

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride.

My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin up Independent Demonstrator from Joshua,TX.

Today, I’d like to share a cheat sheet for beginner stampers and those just graduating from Card Kits and looking for their next step forward in creating their own A2 Cardbases.

I know many times we as more intermediate and avid crafters just simply say, “A2” but I also understand that to a beginning stamper that may sound like a foreign language that they just aren’t familiar with and that’s okay.

I’ll admit I’m guilty of just saying “A2” rather than giving measurements although I really do try to give measurements for all of my projects sometimes I do admit that I get pressured for time.

I also wanted to Blog about this so than anyone reading, who’s brand new to stamping can refer back to this Blog at any time.

Our standard “A2” Cardbase is our simplest Cardbase and easiest to create and provides new stampers with four different options using the exact same measurements.

Let me share with you this chart that I found online:

This chart is perfect because it provides the exact measurements for all four cards.

There’s really only two products that I reccomend for creating your own cardbases. The Stampin’ Trimmer because it makes it easy to both cut and score cardbases and a bone Folder to really be able to burnish and fold those score lines well.

Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope that you’ll join me again soon for another edition and that sharing this chart will help beginner stampers on their journey to becoming intermediate and avid crafters in no time. Until next time – Happy Stampin Everyone!
