When I first started making cards, no one accused me of being creative. Most of my cards were one layer of card stock with stamping on the front. Going to two layers was really a step up for me!
So how did I get from one layer cards to the cards I make now? By looking for patterns. I still look at cards other people make and break them down into a basic pattern of layers that I can duplicate. Once I have the pattern in my head I can make a whole bunch of cards like this…
They are all the same layout, but they are all different too. I used a bunch of different paper designs with the same two greetings stamped in circles.
The bad news is that the A Little Foxy paper I used is sold out, but the good news is that you can make cards like these with ANY papers you have! True story.
Just switch out the card stock & ink colors to match your paper design.
Let’s take a closer look at one of them…
If you like to know exact details, here are the measurements you need…
Whisper White Card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Basic Black: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Woodgrain Paper: 2″ x 5″
Circle Size: 2-3/8″
If you’d rather just eyeball it and go for the general layout… go for it!
All the layers are taped together flat while the greeting circle is raised up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. That makes it super easy to slip that little fox tail in so that he looks like he’s peeking out from behind the circle!
When you spy a card layout you like, you can copy it exactly or add extra embellishments or layers to make it your own. There is no shame in copying! Anything that helps you make and send a card is A-okay.
So go ahead, give this card layout a try.
