Tamara’s Half-Sheet Wonder (Six Cards)

Posted on: February 18, 2021

Last week was Vancouver Island’s once-a-year snowstorm, and I was all too happy to cozy up in my craft room to make some cards.

I used a fun layout I learned from fellow demonstrator Tamara, who showed me how to make six cards with a half-sheet of Designer Series Paper! (Note – direction matters: the photo below shows the DSP in the correct orientation).

Start by cutting along the long side of the DSP at 1.75″ – do this twice, to get two strips that are 1.75″ wide.

Then, cut the last piece in half at 1.25″ wide.

Now you have two pieces that are 1.75″ wide, and two pieces that are 1.25″ wide.

Cut the two wider pieces at 4.25″ long. Cut the two narrower pieces at 3.75″ long. You’ll get two cuts out of each strip of paper.

Now you have the following:
six pieces – 3.75 x 1.25″
four pieces – 1.75 x 4.25″
two pieces – 1.75 x 3.5″

To finish your cards, you will need:

Six cardbases (8.5 x 5.5, scored at 4.25″)
Cardstock mats:
(6 pieces) 4 x 1.5″
(4 pieces) 2 x 4.5″
(2 pieces) 2 x 3.75″

Six white (or vanilla) layers, 4 x 5.25″, embossed if desired
Ribbon/embellishments
White shapes for stamping sentiments

Put your DSP pieces in pairs – whatever sizes look good together to your eye. Flip one piece in each pair so that you have two different patterns.

And finally, turn all these magic ingredients into cards! Choose whatever sentiments you like, assemble, and embellish as desired. Easy peasy!

Happy Stampin’!
