Warning… long post with tons of card ideas to help you use your 6×6 designer paper patterns with “scenes”!! I’ve included instructions for 5 ways to make cards with the Meandering Meadow designer paper and a couple bonus cards with the One Horse Open Sleigh paper! I hope you’ll have a little time to enjoy the Free Video and Tip Sheet download at the bottom of my post!
Enjoy these 5 different designs!
Card Type 1: Side Fold
The side fold idea features a 3″ panel on the front with a continuation of the scene on the inside, which lends a little extra fun interest rather than just a 4″x5-1/4″ panel on the front.
Below: look how pretty this is with the One Horse Open Sleigh paper as well!
Dimensions are also provided on the tip sheet at the bottom of this post.
Card Type 2: Gate Fold
I’ve taken a typical gate fold card and added 2″ strips of designer paper on the inside as well, to bring a little interest and color to the inside!
Card Type 3: Triptych
A Triptych is simply any photo, scene or painting divided into 3 parts. This is a really fun way to use a 6″ piece of Meandering Meadow paper simply by cutting it into 2″ strips!
The greetings are from the Courage & Faith stamp set.
In addition to the Meandering Meadow 6×6 paper shown above, the One Horse Open Sleigh paper (below) and the All About Autumn paper are great choices for this type of card… any paper with a scene works great with these 5 designs. As you can see, I altered the design slightly by switching the two pieces on the inside of the card!
Card Type 4: Top Fold
This top fold design is just the side fold but turned horizontal.. and is another great way to add interest by adding a piece of the scene inside the card.
Meandering Meadow paper reminder: this is part of the Online Exclusive program from Stampin’ UP! and will be released to customers on Nov. 7, and available while supplies last.
Below: another bonus using the One Horse Open Sleigh paper pack, another Stampin’ Up! Online Exclusive product available while supplies last.
Card Type 5: Front Panel Card
Lastly, our 5th design idea does feature a typical “card front”, but, with a twist and an additional panel inside to use the rest of the 6×6 paper!
