Coffee Break Designer Series Paper Follow Up

Just a quick follow up to my post on Wednesday. In yesterday's blog hop, I shared my Coffee Cafe' Card version 2.0 where I mixed up the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper (DSP) to make a new card out of leftover packets from a previous card. I hope you enjoyed the blog hop. What a fabulous group of demonstrators I have found that love to share everything Stampin' Up!

As promised, today I am sharing my template and instructions for cutting the DSP to make this card.

The Crumb Cake card stock base is a standard A2, 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” scored at 4 1/4" (envelope size - 4-3/8” x 5-3/4”). The next layer is Soft Sky card stock, 4" x 5 1/4". This will be the base for layering our cut pieces and the new background for our cute, cute coffee cup embellishment.

Instructions for cutting DSP:

The original size of the DSP from the previous pack was 3 7/8" x 5". The first step is to cut 1/8" off both the short and long sides (Cuts #1, #2 grayed out with a Tranquil Tide Stampin' Write Marker, of course!). The new measurement of the DSP is 3 3/4" x 4 7/8". (Pardon my rudimentary drawings, but cute balloons, right?)

Next cut a 1" strip from the long side (Cut #3). You can chose either long side. I picked the left side to take advantage of the numbers along the edge for this picture.  Place both pieces together and cut at 3" (Cut #4) so that there is the nice, big piece of your "favorite" side of the DSP for the bottom left of your card front.

That is really all there is to it. However, if you are starting from all scraps, the sizes are (top left, clockwise, from the photo of the card, not the template.):

1. 1" x1 7/8'
2. 2 5/8" x 1 7/8"
3. 1" x 3"
4. 2 5/8" x 3"
