It's that time of year, right?....the time when you scramble for a Valentine, or Anniversary/Wedding card... I thought it would be fun to share a way to create several cards from on small square sheet! Grab a cup of coffee, and we'll make some stuff!
Here's what I made from one 6" x 6" sheet of stamped & embossed cardstock:
Let's get started!
First you need a 6" x 6" square of patterned paper or cardstock (I chose cardstock!)
Next, choose your stamps. I wanted to make this an all over design, creating my own patterned paper, so I chose the heart from the Love Stencil set.
Stamp the image randomly all over your sheet, using Versamark Ink. I stamped about 1/4 of the sheet at a time, and sprinkled on my embossing powder as I went. Once all your images are stamped, and powder sprinkled on, heat emboss your sheet. It will look like this:
Isn't this pretty???
Next, cut your sheet as follows. I first cut a 4" strip, all the way down.
Then I cut that into a 4" x 4" piece, which left a 4" x 2" section.
I neglected to photograph that I also cut the 4" x 4" square diagonally, forming two triangle shaped pieces.
Now, you are left with a 2" strip.
Lay that on your trimmer with the long edge at the top. Cut at 3", 4", and 5".
Your sheet will now look like this:
You're ready to create!
Here are the 5 cards that I was able to create using these bits and pieces, and some fun and amazing Repeat Impressions stamps:
Ta-da, - Ta-done!
Wouldn't this make a nice gift set for someone?
Hope you will give this a try - it really is easy and fast, makes such a fun project! It's also a great way to use those scraps of cardstock that we tend to
save ration hoard!!!
