In today’s video I will be showing you how to use simple templates so you can create 66 cards from a 36 page 6×6 pattern paper pad.
The template works with 6 pieces of pattern paper, creating 11 cards each time, so you can make as few or as many cards as you like! I’m adding stamped & coloured images from some of the new Lawn Fawn release, and you can see how I coloured them in the companion colouring video, also linked below.
The beauty of using a set of templates like this, is that it takes the guess-work out of how to cut up your pattern papers to achieve a great card. For those times when your mojo has gone MIA, but you need to get some cards made fast … this template has you covered! You don’t have to follow it strictly … feel free to move the elements around, add more, layer with extra paper or mats and add as few or as many embellishments as you like!
Don’t have 6×6 paper pads? Cut down six 12×12 papers, and make 4 sets … that’s 44 cards! Only have 24 pieces in your paper pad? That’s still 44 cards! Don’t need 66 cards? Just make one batch using the templates from 6 pieces of 6×6 pattern paper, and you still have 11 cards.
And what about those paper pads that are really 6.5×6.5? Simply trim them down to 6×6, and use those extra half inch strips to add more features to your cards … or make a whole new design and get more than 11 cards!
When you read on you will find links to the products I used for today’s video, the printable template & sketch PDF for you to download, as well as two videos (card construction and a colouring companion video).
