1. Regular Card Base

This technique is simple – just replace your card base with a piece of designer paper. I cut my paper to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored it in the center at 4 1/4″.

Here is the front of the card…

2. Z-Fold Card Base

To do this, use a piece of 4 1/4″ x 11 1/2″ designer paper, and a second piece that measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Score the longer piece at 5 1/2″ and 11″. Assemble as shown in today’s video, and decorate as desired!

Here’s what this card looks like opened up.

3. Front Flap Only

This card uses cardstock for the back of the card and designer paper for the front flap. Here are the dimensions: cardstock 4 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ (with the 4 3/4″ edge at the top, score at 4 1/4″) and designer paper measuring either 4″ x 5 1/4″ or 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (you choose depending on if you want the designer paper to cover the entire front or leave a border around the edge).

4. Drapery Fold Technique

This is a technique I shared more about here. Start with a piece of designer paper measuring 6″ x 12″ and score at 1″, 3″, 4″, 6″, 7″, 9″, and 10″. Then use your trimmer to cut at an angle as shown in the video to create two separate pieces. Fold these and attach to your card as desired. This card features Most Adored designer paper.

5. Criss Cross Technique

For this design, you’ll need two strips of paper measuring 1/2″ x 12″ and a piece of cardstock measuring 2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 1/2″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 3 1/2″, and 4 1/2″. Add the strips as shown in the video.

6. Punch Hack

For this card, simply use the Heartfelt Hexagon punch to punch a piece out of the Softly Stippled designer paper, then flip it over to show the contrast from the back side. Then add the greeting on top. This greeting is from the Heartfelt Hellos stamp set which is free right now with a $50 order.

I discovered another punch trick as well. This was a fun surprise as I started playing with my punches. I punched partway through the paper with the Inked & Tiled punches, then folded in the corners. What a fun technique! This one uses the Cradled In Love stamps, a Sale-a-bration reward item.

This card uses the same punch technique along with the Softly Sophisticated embossing folder, another reward item option.
