Make Your Own Greeting Card Base
In this article, a fellow crafter and guest author explains how to make your own greeting card base by using a simple card making technique. With a little embellishment, you can use this base to create a unique card for any occasion!
Making a simple card base is relatively straight-forward. It might take a little practice to get this technique perfected, but once you've got it you'll find it's a piece of cake to make your own cards!
My preferred method of making card bases is to take a letter-sized piece of paper and cut it in half to make two card bases that will fit in an "A2" sized envelope. It makes the most of your cardstock and is very simple to do.

How to Make Greeting Card Bases
Draw a line to connect the lines.
Now you have a line down the center of your cardstock, dividing the paper in half.
Now you have two pieces of cardstock measuring 8 inches by 5 1/2 inches.
Measure 4 1/4 inches along the top and make a pencil mark. Do the same thing along the bottom.
