8 cards at once and a card holder to put them in!!!
Papercrafting Playdate #50 – Card Template and a Card Holder

This template is designed to work on a vertical (portrait) card. You can make 8 cards at one time if using a full sheet of 12 x 12 double-sided patterned paper

 Supplies Needed – 8 of each piece

  • 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” card bases
  • 3” x 3-1/2” patterned paper
  • 3” x 2” patterned paper (flip side)
  • 3/4” x 4-1/4” Basic White cardstock
  • Scraps for die cutting/punching embellishment

How to cut the  12 x 12 piece of pattern paper:

  1. Orient yourself to the pattern design and if there is a direction to the pattern make it vertical.  
  2. Cut off 1” from the bottom edge.
  3. Cut the remaining 12” x 11” piece into 3” strips. There will be 4 strips.
  4. Stack the 4 strips on top of each other, turn horizontal and measure/cut at 3.5” two times, then measure/cut at 2”. 
  5. Flip the 2” x 3” pieces to the backside pattern and pair up with the 3-1/2” x 3” pieces.

Now how about a fun card holder to give these cards to someone as a gift? This easy pattern easily holds 8-10 cards plus envelopes and even has a pocket for storing postage stamps!!!!!! There is also a pdf for this part of the project so you can make it over and over again.

My friends, I hope this projects keeps you happily stamping and thinking of paper that you can use (or use up)! I encourage you to sit down, get busy and enjoy an easy cardmaking experience. Until next time! -Robin
