In this post I’m sharing another version of the stack cut & shuffle technique. If you’re looking to use up some of your 6″ x 6″ patterned papers – this one uses up to 4 sheets! You’ll want to pin this post so that you can come back to it when you start creating your holiday cards.
Here’s what you’ll need to create the 4 cards:
- Card bases (Crumb Cake): 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (x4)
- Inside Layer (Very Vanilla): 4″ x 5-1/4″ (x4) and scraps for your greeting panel
- Matte (Early Espresso): 4″ x 5-1/4″ (x4)
- DSP (All About Autumn): up to 4 sheets of 6″ x 6″ (I only used 2 in this example and then added in an embossed piece of card stock and a stamped piece.
- Coordinating Card Stock (Copper Clay and Mossy Meadow): for die cutting your focal point
- Twine: Crumb Cake baker’s twine was used here
- Embellishments (Rustic Metallic Dots): x12
Just like in the last stack, cut & shuffle example I shared (check it out here), we will use the entire sheets of 6″ x 6″ paper by adding patterned paper to the envelope flaps and the inside of the card. One of the things I’ve been really intentional about lately is using up my scraps when I cut into a piece of patterned paper.
Patterned Paper Measurements:
- Cut down to 3-3/4″ x 5″. If you cut the 3-3/4″ measurement first, you can use the leftover piece to cover the envelope flap. Then cut down to 5″ and that 1″x3-3/4″ piece can be used inside the card.
- From the 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece, you’ll cut 1-1/2″ on the short side. Rotate both pieces of card stock and cut at 1-1/2″ again. This will leave you with one 1-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ piece; one 1-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ piece; one 1-1/2″ x 2-1/4″ and a 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2″ piece.
