This very easy card was made with the ‘Merry Moments’ Designer Series Paper (#115672) that I have had a LOT of fun with. And this was one of my quick Christmas Cards from my ‘Christmas Card Class/Club’ in September.
The card design is a paper saver and a money saver… if you notice, the designer paper is ‘inside’ the vanilla card. Cards are less expensive to make if you can start with our Whisper White (or in this case) Very Vanilla… one pack of 40 sheets will make 80 cards for only $7.50 and working with a 4 inch wide area, saves on designer series paper waste.
For example, the 4×3 panel of vanilla on red swirl pattern will make 12 panels from one sheet of 12 x12 designer series paper. If you went ‘edge-to-edge’ the extra 1/4 inch would waste a lot of designer paper. The stripe is 4×2 inches and you can imagine how many of them you can get from one sheet of dsp… and I got away with using less by putting it on solid paper (stripes on a stripe of red).
