Greetings my stamping friends. I hope you are all doing well and that you are taking time out of your day or week to do a little bit of stamping. For me, getting my fingers on stamps, inks and paper is the best therapy.
With today’s project share, I am starting a three-part series on how you can create a “Double Wonder” from one sheet of 12″ x 12″ piece of designer series paper. This can also be called a “One Sheet Wonder” but instead of starting with cutting on the piece of 12″ x 12″ paper, we are going to cut it to 6″ x 12″ and then cut both pieces the same dimensions. When all is said and done, we will have created 11 cards with the one piece of 12″ x 12″ DSP!
For today’s cuts, we are going to take the 6″ x 12″ pieces and cut off 4.50″ so that you end up with a 4.50″ x 6″ piece (x 2 since we are going to cut both pieces the same). Then cut the 4.50″ x 6″ pieces to 1.50″ x 6″ and you should now have six pieces. Next, cut the 1.50″ x 6″ to 1.50″ x 3″. You should now have 12 pieces that measure 1.50″ x 3″. You will use three pieces for each card and will make four cards. (Set aside the remaining two 7.50″ x 6″ pieces for later.) You will want to cut a standard A2 card base (8.50″ x 5.50″, scored at 4.25″) (x4). Cut a mat that measures 3.25″ x 5″ (x4) in a coordinating color of cardstock.
This is what you will end up with once you have assembled all of the parts:
By changing the punch and which side of the pieces of DSP I used, I created four different, but similar cards. (NOTE: We will use the same sentiments and punches for each group of cards we make, so if you want to get a head start, stamp three of each and punch.)
Here are the Stampin’ Up! supplies that I used in the design of these cards with hyperlinks for you to easily add them to your shopping cart:Product List
If you have any questions on any of the design elements of this card, do not hesitate to contact me.
On April 22 at 1:00 pm (MT), Stampin’ Up! will post the retiring product lists for the January–June 2020 Mini Catalog and 2019–2020 Annual Catalog. These last-chance products will be available until June 2 or while supplies last only, so check my blog for more information. And remember—retiring items sell fast. Get your favorites before they’re gone!
Some items that I know will retire are the 2018-2020 In Colors.
If these are among your favorite colors, be sure to place your order now because these items are among the first to sell out.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
