I have had numerous requests for the measurements for the mini bridge card that we made at card club in September. A problem with (my?) server has meant quite a few emails have bounced back so here are some instructions if you would like to make a mini bridge card and were not able to come to card club in September when we made these two penguin cards.
You can make two base cards from one piece of A4 card!
Cut A4 card in half widthways at 14.8 cm. Then move to 11cm and cut again. The smaller piece is the bridge and needs to be cut to 16 cm long.
Score the main card at each end at 2.5 cm and 5 cm. Use a bone folder to crisp and reinforce the folds.
Cut panels from white card for the decorating layers. For each card you need one piece 10.5 x 10.5 cm for the back of the card, and four pieces each 2 x 10.5 cm for the folds. Using scissors cut a 16 cm length of white card into curves to represent a snow bank.
In class we created two different backgrounds. One was stamped and coloured with pan pastels. The other was coloured with distress inks. We used die cut penguins and a stamped penguin to decorate the cards, but I also made lots of other sample cards showing a variety of other ideas.

I also created a mini bridge card using Jane Gills new cat stamp set – Four Fine Feline’s which hasn’t been shown on the blog:
The fourth fella is on the back!
Another view. I used a 12×12 patterned paper from the shop as the small pattern was perfect to go with those fine felines! I stamped the cats onto coloured card and then added details with pens.
