Hello crafty friends!  What a couple of weeks it has been as we all try to find what our “current normal” is.  As crafters/card makers, it’s our time to spread some joy with a handmade card so I want you to make a card along with Dave & I today. It’s good for you and it’s good for your family & friends to craft along with you, and of course the recipient of your cards receives joy too!

Let’s make a card that is a fun card layout and uses up all that Designer Series Paper (some of you know it as scrapbook paper) you have laying around.  It’s a fun way to make 4 simple cards at one time.

Since Dave is working from home right now, I decided to have him help me with the video.  Make sure you watch to see all this mad card making skills (and come alongside of us and make a card yourself)!

Easy Layout to Make 4 Cards

make-a-card-handmade-with-simple-design

You are going to start with 4 pieces of Designer Series Paper that are 4″ x 5 1/4″

First cut at the 2 1/2″, then cut each of the 2 pieces as shown.

Do this with all 4 pieces

Now it’s time to mix and match them for the 4 cards.

You will adhere them to a piece of Whisper White that is 4″ x 5 1/4″

After adhering the 4 pieces, trim it down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and layer onto coordinating card stock that is 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″

This many sound confusing, but watch the video because it’s so easy that even Dave can do it!

Then, just finish off your 4 cards!

My Version

I made a set also using the Bird Ballad DSP.
