Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a thrifty project where I transformed one piece of paper into six cards. Say what?!? I took this paper to the right and fussy cut six images from it. Then I determined a corresponding background shape and color and cut it out either using a punch, my Cricut or just a paper trimmer, making it a slightly bigger than the fussy cut image.
Next, I decided what color solid cardstock I wanted as my base, cut it to size and cut a corresponding polka dot basic piece of paper as the sub- base. I attached the sub-base using foam tape and attached the fussy cut image with its corresponding background shape to the middle right of the card’s center.
Then I punched two different-sized hearts from black cardstock and attached them to the left of the fussy cut image using Tombow glue.
I tried two different stamping methods, but ended with a white heat-embossed stamp on a black piece of card stock. I attached this to the bottom using foam tape and hot glued a piece a black twine I tied in a bow to the upper right-hand corner of the image.
I simply love how these turned out! I am very keen on the idea of stretching one piece of completely adorable paper into six cards with the help of some basics most craft rooms stock.
I also am a huge fan of knocking out a few cards in a few hours without having to pull out new supplies or rethink the wheel each time. These will be perfect for those newly found out moms or new baby arrivals!
