I just re-read my post and decided that while I was trying to describe the tracing and cutting of the bases it sounded pretty confusing so decided on a new visual.
First I needed a 12x24 inch piece of card stock. This is from a pad I got years ago so it worked. I then traced 2 of the fold out card styles on to the sheet. 1 on bottom and 1 on top. With the middle piece I was able to obtain 2 more card bases by just drawing a straight line. Note the two middle cards are NOT the same size as the traced ones.
The very center straight strip is scrap as is the small straight piece on lower right I now have 4 different cards with which to work with.
I'm still working on gathering supplies and Designer paper for the 4 cards I originally cut from the light green paper. I have been taking care of sick grandkids so my time is limited but stay tune....I promise these cards will be done before the week is over.
Hope this better explained what I've been trying to do.
