Comic strip card tutorial

Comic strip card tutorial for MFT.

Hi there! Today on the MFT YouTube channel I’m sharing a tutorial on how to make this fun camping-themed comic strip card. Join me!

It features images from the new Happy Camper and Helping Hands stamp sets. I started by drawing a rough sketch of the card to see if the little story that I came up with would make sense. Then I made a second skectch with all of the measurements and images to check that everything fit.

Measurements for comic strip card

Next, I cut all of the frames with my paper trimmer. Here are the measurements if you want to make a comic strip card exactly like mine:

  • Frame 1 (with car): 2 1/4″ x 1 1/2″ (5,8cm x 3,8cm)
  • Frame 2 (landscape): 2 5/8″ x 1 1/2″ (6,7cm x 3,8cm)
  • Frame 3 (kayaking bear): 2″ x 1 7/8″ (5,1cm x 4,7cm)
  • Frame 4 (My hero): 1 1/4″ x 1 7/8″ (3,2cm x 4,7cm)
  • Frame 5 (tent): 1 1/2″ 1 7/8″ (3,8cm x 4,7cm)

I left a distance of about 3/16″ (5mm) around each frame except for the middle 1/2″ (1,2cm) for the sentiment. You can also leave a 1/4″ (7mm) outer frame, 3/8″ (1cm) for the middle and 1/8″ (3mm) between the frames, like in my sketch below.
