Simple Card Design Using Your Patterned Paper and Video Tutorial

Easy-card-design-4-x-1-easter-pinkToday's project is in response to two requests that many of you have submitted recently regarding simple card-making designs and the use of your stacks of patterned paper.

In this week's LIVE, this simple card design was created using designer paper from my stash!

Whether you are a beginning card maker or you've been at this hobby for quite a while,  the right paper can make all the difference. And if by some chance you haven't tried Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper yet, then you're missing out!

Here are just a few of the benefits of using Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper for simple card designs:

  1. High-quality paper - Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper is known for its high-quality, thick paper that is perfect for card making.

  2. Coordinating patterns - The Designer Paper collections are designed to coordinate with other Stampin' Up! products, making it easy to create a cohesive and coordinating card design.

Easy-card-design-4-x-1-freesiaLet's take a look at the video tutorial and then read on for the "recipe"!

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Card Stock Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Fold in half at 4 1/4.  This will be a landscape-style card.
  • Card Stock Layer: 3 1/4 x 4 5/8.
  • Designer Series Paper (patterned paper): 4 strips cut at 3 x 1.
  • Measure your sentiment or image to determine the size you will need.

Easy-card-design-4-x-1-stackOnce I started with this easy design, I couldn't stop!  I had planned to make a stack of Easter cards and these will be beautiful with that Happy Easter sentiment.

Here are the papers and stamp set used for the cards that were assembled in the LIVE video.
