Scrambled Blocks Card Template #13

It’s time for another card template! I’m so excited to share this template with you because it is not only easy to put together, but has so many variations to try! Whether using DSP or cardstock that has been embossed with a folder, you can create some amazing card fronts! I received major inspiration for this idea from fellow demonstrator, Vy Tran of Crafting Daily Dose, who shared this idea on her website. Take a peek at my video tutorial for step-by-step directions and download the pdf for your creative files.

Card Template #13 – Scrambled Blocks
Card Template #13


  • 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” card base
  • 4” x 5-1/4 ” cardstock neutral 
  • 2-1/2”  x 1-1/4” DSP (4 different designs)
  • 2-1/2”  x 1-1/4” Basic White
  • 1-1/4” x 1-1/4” DSP (2 different designs)
  • Embossing folder (optional)
  • Ribbon or embellishments


  1. On the 4” x 5-1/4 ” piece of cardstock start adhering the blocks starting with the 2 squares in opposite corners. There will be an 1/8” margin around the edges and in between the blocks
  2. Continue adhering the  rectangular blocks lining up around the outside edge, leaving the Basic White rectangle for last.
  3. Stamp greeting sentiment on the Basic White rectangle and attach to card front.
  4. Optional: Run the card front through an embossing folder to “quilt it.”
  5. Adhere the card front to the card base.
  6. Embellish as desired.

I hope you give this card template a try and enjoy its simplicity and beauty! Come post your sample/creations in our Facebook Group: Robin’s Really Super Stampers.

    1. Hi Melanie! Thank you! I’m glad you like the layout. I try to invent OSW as they come to me – it’s always on my mind!

    Robin I love this layout, especially the 1 1/4 to 2 1/2 ratio. It makes it so easy to count and cut. Thank you

    1. Hi Kathleen! I’m glad you are enjoying this layout as much as I do. Once you start, it’s hard to stop!

  2. I missed this playdate so finding it just now on your blog is exciting. I’m going to play with this design this afternoon.

    1. Hi Veronika! Thank you for your sweet words – I appreciate you taking the time to write me. I’m always thrilled to know that people are creating! Thanks!

  3. Dear Robin, Could you please tell me the name of the embossing folder that you used to make the light green card with the black gingham ribbon? It says so very merry on the front. It’s a beautiful card! Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Fran! The embossing folder I used is called Whimsical Woodlands. It is a retired product, however, and you would have to search for retired Stampin’ Up! products online to see if someone is selling it currently from their stash. Thank you very much for your message!
