Happy Mother's Day to all the Mums

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mums, hope you had a great day with lots of love and hugs from your family.

I have had several ladies with me today doing the One-sheet Wonder Class, we had a lot of laughs and really enjoyed the day. During the class we talked about some basic card sketches which are quick and easy to do and how they could be used in their card making.  The ladies went home with 12 cards from one piece of designer series paper. 

I am sharing the cutting template (at the bottom of this post) and card instructions with you. The cutting template is not to scale, however the measurements are detailed.

The designer series paper sheet used to make the cards is from the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series paper pack.

    1. Hi Janet, I live in Australia and we use metric measurements here, so sorry I have not done them in inches. However, you should be able to adapt the measurements to inches by using a conversion tool that you can download. Cheers, Carolyn
