How to make 8 cards from 1/2 sheet; I know you think I am off my rocker! And I maybe. But I am here to show you how to make 8 cards from one sheet of 6 x12 designer series paper.

The Challenge: I was telling Kelly that you did not need to have a ton of products to make cards. After she rolled her eyes at me in total disbelief, she spouted out those 2 words; “Prove IT”.

So here we go: 

  • She gave one sheet of 6 x12 designer series paper.
  • Assorted pieces of card stock.
  • A stamp set bundle.
  • Adhesive. 
  • And a few pieces of ribbon.

Oh and finally she agreed I could use the trimmer. Thanks to the 10 people she was chatting with who said they owned a trimmer. LOL

I love the way these 3 pieces in the one sheet wonder laid out. As you can see this should have been 2 different cards.

The Fine Art Floral designer series paper is so beautiful and makes for some use of color.  In this sample I have layered it with Poppy Parade and Basic Black on Smokey Slate card base. Love the way this layout came together.
