Let me show you how to make fabulous quick cards with a card layout you’ll use LOTS.

Honestly, these are some of my favorite kinds of cards…..  fabulous quick cards with Designer Series Paper.  I love to let the pretty papers do all the work and just add a greeting and I am sure you will love this idea too. You can make up a whole batch of quick and easy handmade cards at once. Then you have them ready to send as needed.

This layout is all about making 2 cards at one time from a 6″ x 6″ piece of paper. And if you don’t know where to start with a 12″ x 12″ piece, I have you covered for that in the video!


Besides showing how to make these cards, today’s video is filled with a ton of tips that will help you in all your card making!

Fabulous Quick Cards with Designer Series Paper

The best way to show you how easy this layout is in making fabulous quick cards is with a video.  See how I cut the paper and use a 6″ x 6″ piece to make 2 cards with very little scrap left over. I also show how to start with a piece of 12″ x 12″.

I hope that as you watched, you envisioned how you could use any paper you have. Just combine with coordinating card stock and the greeting of your choice.

Just grab yourself a piece of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (DSP), some coordinating Card stock, and cut it using the below diagram.


The above cards are one of the sets I made in the video. If you’d like to learn how I did the ribbon, make sure to watch.
