I'm not cheating - these aren't the cards for day 49...keep reading :)
The idea for these came from this blog post I found on Pinterest. What a perfect way to use up small scraps! However I needed to make a template, because simply cutting scraps wasn't going to cut it (pun intended).
To do this I used the inspiration pic as my guide. I took my scoreboard and started scoring lines. Below is the back of my template (please ignore the silly quote I wrote on there - I was being funny when Shannon was over).
The template looked just like this on the front after scoring, but in reverse (lines indented instead of embossed).
Then I colored in the boxes I needed for the card:
That's what the front of my template now looks like. I measured the sides of each box and wrote down the measurements so I knew what size to cut.
Today, I used this template to make up a cute patchy Christmas card:
