Figuring out measurements for a card sketch

A question that I am asked often, is how do I figure out the measurements from a card sketch that doesn't already include measurements. And though, I really do just eye ball them, I thought I'd make a video showing how I do it. Just remember, sketches are just a starting point. It's okay to alter the sketch to work for your own card.

paper - Carta Bella - Paris Girl
stamp - Lil Inker Designs
stitched circle die cut - Lil Inker Designs
heart die cuts - Lawn Fawn
brads - from stash
ink - Memento

Here are my measurements for Mojo Monday Sketch #409.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
