Wow! Now that’s a mouthful! But yes, I have just used a 6″ x 6″ piece of Texture Chic Designer Series Paper to create four lovely, semi-identical cards. My cards:
- Soft Seedlings Stamp Set (159905)
- Basic White Thick card stock (159229) 8-1/2″ x 5-1/5″, scored at 4-1/4″
- Pool Party card stock (122924) 5-1/4″ x 4″
- Soft Suede card stock 4″ x 4″ scrap for die cut piece (115318) about 4″ x4″
- Basic White card stock scrap for greeting (159276) about 3″ x 3″
- Texture Chic Designer Series Paper (DSP) (158808) 6″ x 6″
- Soft Suede Classic Ink (147115)
- Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (149653)
- Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (156505) (optional but great for added texture)
- Meadow Dies (155852) greeting die is included in this set of dies
- Painted Labels Dies (151605)
- Dimensionals (104430)
- Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots (159082)
- Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755) OR….
- Stampin’ Seal (152813)
Make a dot on the BACK SIDE of a 6″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) 2″ from each left corner. That’ll be 4 dots! Use a Paper Trimmer to cut on the lines (imaginary or drawn in as guides). If you’re using a dark patterned piece of DSP, make your marks on a piece of printer paper and lay it on top of the DSP for cutting guidance.
Putting it All Together
- Emboss the 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer and attach it to the card front.
- Add one of the DSP pieces to this card front.
- Stamp greeting on the Basic White card stock using Soft Suede Classic Ink; die cut using Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
- Add to card front using Dimensionals.
- Repeat for the remaining three cards.
I’ll confess right now that I did go a tad crazy trying to position each of my segments of DSP in different directions. You know what? Your lucky card recipients will never know that two pieces were in the same position! You can also alternate between portrait (opens on right side) and landscape (opens at the bottom) positions for your card openings.
This card was a fun challenge for sure. If I were to do it again I would run the two horizontal/landscape positioned Pool Party layers through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine so the Timeless Type embossed words were horizontal. Did you even notice? I didn’t until it was way too late.
