Oooh...this was tricky...

Most of you who know me will know that I never (well extremely rarely) use a pre-made template of any kind. I much prefer to make everything from scratch & work out all the measurements myself.

Well I'd seen a few of these cards around on various blogs & decided to give one a go.. Boy was it tricky!!!.. I don't know why but I just couldn't suss the measurements/folds out.. I wanted to be able to make it from a complete sheet of A4 & no matter how many times I practiced it just wouldn't work!!! I got there eventually though..
...& if you want to know the measurements......you'll have to come along to a workshop!!! ;o)
