Tutorial: Triangle Cards

Since the July – December Mini Catalogue is launching soon, we crafters are starting to get in the holiday spirit – so I thought I’d show you a simple card layout that’s easy to make in multiples. This could be a great design for your stacks of holiday cards this year, and best of all, it’s made with Designer Series Paper you can get from the annual catalogue … in fact, this paper is on sale for 15% off until August 2nd! What a deal!

Measurements:
Cardbase – 5.5 x 8.5″
Contrasting cardstock – 4 x 5.25″
Designer Series Paper- 3.75 x 5″

Today, I’ll be making a set of four cards. You could easily make just one of these cards at a time, but if you make multiples, you’ll have more options for the mix-and-matching that comes later.

Use your trimmer to cut your DSP diagonally, from corner to corner.

Then, take the two pieces you just cut and line them up as if you didn’t cut them. Rotate them so you can cut diagonally from the opposite corners.

You’ll end up with this:

Repeat with each of your DSP layers.

Now it’s time to mix and match! Play around with your triangles – including flipping them from front to back – to find combinations you like.

Then, attach your DSP triangles to your contrasting cardstock layers. There will be borders around all the edges and in between the pieces.

Now attach them to your cardbases.

And finally, decorate as desired!

You can see how easy it would be to make a whole stack of these – in fact, I think I’ll do just that when the weekend rolls around! Don’t forget to check out the product list below to see what I used to make these cards!

Tutorial: Double Easel Card

The double easel card is one of my favourite fun folds – you get to show off a LOT of Designer Series Papers, and it’s so quick and easy to create!


To create this fun fold, you essentially need to create two different cardbases and then attach them together. The first cardbase is 4.25 x 11″, scored at 5.5″. The second is 4 x 10.25”, scored at 2.5 + 5”. You’ll also need three pieces of Designer Series Paper, one cut to 3.75 x 5”, and two pieces cut to 2.25 x 3.75”.

For these two cards, I’ve used the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper, a host exclusive product from the annual catalogue. This is a MASSIVE pack of paper with 48 sheets of 12 x 12″ paper. Every sheet has fun, bright colours on one side and simple black-and-white images on the other, making it a super versatile product that you can use for pretty much any project! You can get this paper pack FREE when your party reaches $200 or more!

The Double Easel card is very simple to put together, but if you’d like to watch a video with all the steps, you can find one here!

What’s your favourite way to show off Designer Series Paper?

Tutorial: Double Dutch Fold

Have you made a Double Dutch fold card before? It’s a great way to show off lots of our gorgeous Designer Series Papers, because you can use three different paper designs on one card! Check out the instructions below!

You’ll need two pieces of the same colour cardstock (I used Evening Evergreen):
9 x 4-3/16”, scored at 5.5”
8.5 x 2”, scored at 2-1/8” from each end


Burnish your folds.

Apply adhesive between the two scorelines on the long narrow piece, and attach to the other piece as shown. This is your cardbase.

You’ll need two matching pieces of DSP, cut to 1-7/8 x 1.75”, and two pieces of cardstock to mat these pieces on, cut to 2 x 1-7/8”.
(I chose to use white cardstock; choose whatever colour cardstock co-ordinates with the DSP you’re using.)

You’ll also need a piece of DSP cut to 3-15/16 x 3.25”, and a piece of cardstock cut to 4-1/16 x 3-3/8”.


You’ll need a white insert of 5.25 x 3-15/16”, and contrasting cardstock cut to
5-3/8 x 4-1/16”.

 

 Finally, you’ll need an extra piece of DSP and an extra piece of cardstock for decorating. You may choose to cut one or both of these pieces with your favourite nesting dies, such as Stitched Rectangles, Stitched so Sweetly dies, Scalloped Contours dies, etc.



Mat your three pieces of DSP and attach to your card as shown.


Attach your white insert and contrasting cardstock to the inside of the card. 



Mat your two decorative pieces together and attach them to the top front flap of the card as shown.


Now it’s time to decorate!

And embellish your card as desired.

Here’s another view of the finished card.
