You'll need 10 sheets of paper, and it makes 8 fabulous cards, slightly modified from the sketch above.
Club Stamp members receive a 12-pack of 8.5x11" paper in each monthly kit, two each of six different colors. So, all you'd need is your paper pack and matching rubber stamps for instant grab 'n go success! I used my paper pack and stamps from the October Peacock collection.
Next up, cutting time. If you're new to this, just take 'er one step at a time. Use your 12" guillotine trimmer from Tonic for quick action.
Two each of paper A, B, C and D:
1. Trim horizontally at 10.75 and 5.5".
2. Cut the 5.25x8.5 horizontally at 7.75 and 4".
3. Trim the 3.75x5.25 horizontally at 4.75, 3 and 1.5".
4. Score and fold each 5.5x8.5 horizontally in half at 4.25" to make a total of 8 cards.
Paper E and F:
1. Trim vertically at 7.25 and 3.75".
2. Cut the 3.75x11 horizontally at 8.25, 5.5 and 2.75".
3. Trim the 3.5x11 horizontally at 10, 7.5, 5 and 2.5".
Now, the fun part. Interchange the pieces so that each color is represented at least once on all 8 cards. Follow the samples to see how everything comes together. It's really a neat process. I put everything in stacks according to size and then "deal 'em out" like an expert in a Vegas casino.
Stamp and alter the panels prior to final assembly, and have fun adding embellishments from your stash if you're in the mood! Well, everything but glitter. NO glitter if you plan to send these cards to Operation Write Home! I kept mine super-simple by simply stamping images with my India Black inkpad.
I love the stamp . . . "I remembered that I forgot your birthday." Half the time I can't remember why I walked into the room.
It seems that I can never have enough "Get Well" cards.
The "Happy Birthday" and "Belated" are two separate stamps, so if you're late, just add the "belated."
Another great outside image for a "get well" card. You might get a giggle out of it.
This one always makes me smile, too.
So there 'ya go. I was able to finish the cards in less than an hour. Good times!
