Simply Sunday: Quick & Easy Cards with the Dandy Designs Paper

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’ll share a few Quick & Easy cards that I created with the Dandy Designs Designer paper in the Sale-a-bration Catalog. The idea behind these creations is to “cut” your designer paper and use it! lol

We begin by cutting 4″ strips from our 12 x 12 Designer paper … then cut it in half (6″). From there we trim it down to 5-1/4″. This gives us a nice border around our card base, and that little left over piece can be used to decorate the inside of your card.

All of my cards have been embellished with the Medium Daisy Punch ….

With this quick & easy cut pattern, you can create 6 cards per sheet ….

This is just a representation of the cut pattern and NOT “exact” measurements.

Next up we have a 4″ x 4″ cut pattern with results in 9 cards per sheet. There are more ways to use both of these cut patterns. I’m just sharing the most popular / simple card designs. Also note that the peek of paper behind the designs cut is the reverse side of the these designer paper sheets.

This is just a representation of the cut pattern and NOT “exact” measurements.

On this card we are creating a card with the 4″ x 4″ square with a twist … We cut the square piece of designer paper diagonally … from corner to corner. Then you attach to card at opposite ends to create the “Split Card Technique”. How cool is that!

You can use this fun and easy technique with any designer paper but with 48 sheets in the Dandy Designs package you will have an endless supply of fun, and so many card possibilities. Dandy Designs is one of the choices in FREE merchandise during Sale-a-bration.

My last card also uses the 4″ x 4″ piece, however we trimmed it down a 1/4″ off the top and side so we could have a nice border around it …..

These quick & easy cards were all created during my LIVE presentation yesterday for my Catalog Launch party. I go LIVE on Tuesday Nights at 6:30 with New Products, Fun Folds or Techniques … always a fun time and great projects! Hope to see you there.

Thank you for stopping by this Sunday. Have a wonderful day ~
