Double Sheet Wonder


Are you like me and have way too much pattern papers? Are you in need of some any occasion cards? Well then this double sheet wonder is for you!! 

To start off, you will need two 6 x 6" pieces of double sided pattern paper. I'm using the beautiful Pansy Petals designer series paper. Then cut 5 card bases in colors that coordinate with your paper. I went with Pale Papaya, Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, Fresh Freesia, and Calypso Coral. You will also need 5 pieces of Basic White cardstock cut to 5-1/4 x 4". I have cut a second set of 5 pieces of Basic White layers for the inside of my cards. Other supplies include coordinating inks, a sentiment stamp, & a punch or dies. As for embellishments, I used the In Color Jewels and pansies/leaves that were die cut from the Pansy Petals DSP. 

For all the cutting instructions and various layout ideas, be sure and watch my video. Be aware, I'm battling a cold so my voice is a little gruff and I cough a lot throughout the video. Hope you will give this Double Sheet Wonder a try.
