You may think that having limited supplies means that you can’t make very many different types of cards, but that’s just not true! The same supplies can usually be mixed and matched in different ways to make totally unique cards.
These two cards were made using the SAME paper pieces – with just one little strip of card stock added to the thinking of you card.
Mint Macaron card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Patterned Paper: 4″ x 5-1/4″
White Scalloped Edge Rectangle
For the birthday card, I used the floral side of a piece of Hand-Penned patterned paper and stamped a large greeting on my scalloped rectangle.
This birthday greeting stamp from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set fits perfectly in the scalloped rectangle.
Then I just added a few Genial Gems as embellishments.
This whole card is easy peasy!
For the thinking of you card, I stamped a large flower on my scalloped rectangle, added it to my card on an angle, and added my greeting on a small strip of white card stock. The striped pattern is on the backside of the floral paper I used on the birthday card. Mind blowing, right?!
Same paper pieces, totally different-looking cards!
The stamps to make the gorgeous flower and the “I’m thinking of you” sentiment stamp are all from the Art Gallery stamp set. It’s a very versatile stamp set that can be used for many, many occasions.
I did use some Genial Gems on both cards to add a little extra pizzazz too. The spatula on the Take Your Pick tool made it really easy to pick them up and place them on my cards.
Give it a try! Cut 2 sets of paper pieces and see how you can make 2 different cards.
