Fresh Freesia card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Floral paper: 3″ x 4″
Berry Burst: 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ and banner cut with Stylish Shapes die
Basic White circle: 1-3/4″ cut with Stylish Shapes die

 

One of my favorite ways to make cards with 12×12 patterned paper is to cut a piece into 3″x4″ pieces to make twelve cards.

It’s the easiest one sheet wonder around!

Both of these cards, for different occasions, use the same layout and different sheets of paper from Stampin’ Up!’s Delightful Floral paper pack.

You can, of course, make similar cards with any pretty patterned papers you have on hand.

Card Making Tips:

  • Start by cutting your 12×12 patterned paper into 3″x4″ pieces. Then determine what card stock colors you like for the mat and card base.
  • Watch the video in this post for cutting tips and how you can cut 6 mats out of one sheet of 8-1/2” x 11” card stock. (Save your scraps to cut the banners!)
  • Leave your card base plain, stamp your own background, or emboss the full card front with an embossing folder. (Find tips for embossing a full card front here.)
  • Add your greetings and any embellishments you’d like. Keep your cards simple or jazz them up.
  • The Take Your Pick Tool is great for easily adding small embellishments like sequins. Watch the video in this post to see how.
  • You can make 12 of the SAME card or you can create 12 different cards. Your choice! 12 of the same cards do go together a lot faster.

 

So there you go, grab a piece of 12×12 patterned paper and make 12 quick cards.

Happy Stamping!
