Piecing it Together
I have shared faux quilt cards before as a way to mix together beautiful Designer Series Papers (DSPs). This time, I wanted to show you how to start with a single sheet and cut it down to create panels that will fit together.
This one uses the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper, which is available for free with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration, through the end of February 2023, or while supplies last. The sentiment from Cheerful Baskets fits perfectly in one of the horizontal rectangles. As always, the link to supplies is at the bottom of this post.
Watch the video for detailed instructions, and use the summary of measurements below. You'll want to make the cuts in the specific order listed! It takes longer to describe it than to actually do it, so don't be intimidated by the long explanation.
-Pear Pizzazz cardstock
8-1/2” (W) x 5-1/2” (H), scored at 4-1/4” along the long side
-Old Olive cardstock
TWO 4” (W) x 5-1/4” (H)
-Basic White cardstock
3-3/4" (W) x 5" (H)
-Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper
Start with 3-13/16” (W) x 5” (H)
Cut a 1-1/4" (H) horizontal strip from the bottom; from that piece, cut a 2-9/16" (W) x 1-1/4" (H) piece from the left, leaving a 1-1/4" (W) x 1-1/4" (W) piece on the right
Cut a 1-1/4" (W) vertical strip from the left of the remaining paper; from that piece, cut a 1-1/4" (W) x 1-1/4" (W) piece from the top, leaving a 1-1/4" (W) x 2-1/2" (H) piece on the bottom
Cut a 1-1/4" (H) horizontal strip from the bottom of the remaining paper; discard or turn over and use the other side for the sentiment
Cut a 1/16" (W) vertical strip from the right of the remaining paper; discard
Cut the remaining paper in half to form TWO 1-1/4" (W) x 2-1/2" (H) vertical strips
Separately, cut 2-9/16" (W) x 1-1/4" (H) from a different area of the DSP for the sentiment (optional), OR turn over the horizontal rectangle cut previously from the main piece OR substitute with Basic White cardstock
I hope you'll enjoy making these!
