Flowers For Every Season Miles Apart Cards. Today I am sharing a really quick and easy way to make lots of stunning cards AND stretch your 6 x 6 paper packs. If you are like me, you may find that 6 x 6 papers are a little challenging to use. Where ever you are in the world, your standard card front size means that if you use your 6 x 6 papers, you only get one card from a piece. How does 3 cards sound? Let me show you how.
How to make these Quick and Simple Cards
Simply cut your papers into 2″ strips and adhere them a little in from the left hand edge of your card front. I chose to come in 1/2″ (approx 1.25cm), but as long as the paper is placed straight, the exact measurement is not important. I used Snail adhesive, but did use quite a bit to make sure that it was not going to budge.
The coloured strips on either side of the paper are just very narrow strips of coordinating card. I used double sided adhesive sheets to turn my card into a sticker and then trimmed it to 1/8″ (approx 0.25cm). Adding the double sided adhesive sheet makes this so simple to do. You could use Multi Purpose Liquid Glue if you would rather, but I was going for speed.
The Finishing Touches
Adding the sentiment is the final part of the card. I decided to use the Lovely You stamps and matching Lovely Label Pick a Punch Bundle. This makes it so quick and easy to finish off your card. Did you notice that simply by changing the colour of the cardstock strip you change the whole card? I love that it is so simple to do that. If you want to see just how easy it is, just click on the video below.
As I promised, quick and simple. With 48 sheets in the pack of paper, you could make 144 card from just one pack! If you can’t wait until 3rd June to get your hands on this paper, why not think about joining my Team of Sparkling Sunflowers?
