Here’s what you need to get started:
-2 6″ x 12″ pieces of coordinating patterned paper. (If it has an obvious up and down pattern, be sure the pattern is pointed up when the 12 inch side is horizontal.)
-11 card bases, cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. These should be in colors that match the patterned papers or whisper white/very vanilla card stock.
-4 pieces of neutral cardstock- whisper white, very vanilla or a light coordinating color- cut 3 1/4″ x 5″.
Extra neutral card stock for sentiments
Label or dies to cut out sentiments
Adhesive and scissors
Once you have the materials assembled, you will need to cut your 6″ x 12″ pieces of paper. You can layer them together and cut both at once or repeat these instructions for each piece.
Follow the diagram below.
1. Take the 3 1/2″ x 6″ piece and cut the 6″ side at 2 1/4″ and then 2 1/4″ again. Then cut the 1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ piece along the 3 1/2″ side at 1 3/4″. These pieces make the cards in the photo below. (I did mount two rectangles on a 4 x 5 1/4″ piece of whisper white leaving a gap in the middle that I covered with the 3 /4″ strip leftover from the 4″ block.)
