Simplified Fracture Card

 

These fracture cards are really making their rounds over the internet lately.  I have done a post/video on the technique, but for my upcoming a la carte cards, I've simplified it with just using one sheet of designer series paper.

Card measurements (in inches)
Bubble Bath - 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper  4 x 5-1/4
Basic White   2 x 2
Garden Green  1/4 x 5-1/2 (4)
