Do you have any double-sided patterned papers that both sides look good together?
Here’s how you can use them to make quick & easy cards!
This is basically a one sheet wonder idea because you can make 6 cards out of ONE sheet of 12×12 double-sided patterned paper!
Watch this video for tips on how to choose your paper, cut your paper and take a closer look at the 6 cards that I made out of ONE sheet of the beautiful Hydrangea Hill paper!
How to Make these Quick Cards:
Cut your 12×12 paper into three 4″ strips.
Then cut each 4″x12″ strip into two 5-1/4″ long pieces and two 3/4″ pieces.
Flip a 3/4″ piece over and tape it to a 5-1/4″ piece, then tape to your card front and add a greeting. That’s it!
Card bases: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ OR 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ (see video above)
Hydrangea paper: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Purple patterned paper: 3/4″ x 4″
See how you can use different patterned papers with this technique below:
The friend greeting is from the Heartfelt stamp set… it’s for more than just Valentine cards!
Use a die or punch to make fun shapes for your greetings.
