Today I wanted to share instructions of how to make these super quick and easy cards. As the title of the blog post suggests, you can create 4 cards from one sheet of DSP. This was perfect for me as I needed to make a bulk lot of cards (27 in total) as a thank you statement, and wanted to use up some of my retired DSP – I have banned myself from buying any new DSP until I destash a bit. Win-win!
I began by searching for inspiration, and came across this card layout on Pinterest from the Mojo Monday blogspot:
And this is what I came up with:
The three small squares have been cut out using the second smallest square from the Stitched Shapes framelits. Yep – I cut out 81 squares in total! I flipped one over to create a contrasting feature in the top left corner.
- Cardstock base: half an A4 sheet (14.9cm x 21cm); scored in the middle at 10.5cm
- DSP base: 14.4cm x 10cm (adhered with snail)
- Cardstock square: 9.5cm square (adhered with dimensionals)
With the DSP, cut two 10cm wide strips from a full sheet. From these two strips, you can get two DSP bases each (four in total). Use the remainder of the DSP to die cut the squares. I adhered the squares with snail.
I ended up with a variety of patterns and colour combinations, and mixed it up with portrait and landscape orientations.
So, need to bulk-make some cards? Hope this makes it easier for you ☺️
