Easy Peasy Designer Paper Cards!

Have you seen this cute stack of Pretty Petals designer paper at Stampin' Up!? I love this pack of paper because the size is 6" x 6" and there's 48 sheets! Woohoo!

There are a total of 12 different designs and patterns. So what can you do with all 12? Make these cute, simple, quick & easy cards. I used six of the patterns just to give you an idea on how to use the stack of paper:

I cut each sheet into two pieces. First I cut a piece measuring 3-3/4" x 3-3/4". I then used this same piece and trimmed off 3/4" on one end. Now to assemble each card: 
*Card Base: Very Vanilla Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score in the center at   5-1/2" and fold.
* Designer Paper: Glue the largest piece of designer paper 1/4" from     the top.
* Designer Paper: Flip the 2nd piece of designer paper on the opposite side and glue below the 1st designer paper piece. You now have 2 patterns in place from the same sheet of designer paper.
* Swirl Image: Stamp the swirl image from the Hello Life stamp set       using Memento Black Ink below the designer paper.
* Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment using Memento Black Ink below the  swirl from the Another Thank You stamp set.

What a great set of cards to create aren't they? Easy to mass-produce and what a nice gift to present to someone. You could even make a nice box to store them in!

  1. Absolutely love the idea of these cards having many beautiful 6x6 pieces of paper leftover. The paper is beautiful but I was at a loss as what to do with them. Question?? I will freely admit to being math challenged...but is it really 6x6 cut in half then into 3 3/4? I am assuming you meant 2 3/4. Please help my math addled brain. Enjoy you blog immensely. Thanks for the help!!

    1. Hi Rosemarie, I did not cut the DSP exactly in half. I cut it 3-3/4" 3-3/4" and using that same piece that I cut, trim off 3/4" on any end to flip and use the opposite side for the strip. The remainder of the DSP can be used for another card.
