13 Cards from 1 Sheet!
I found this 12 x 12 Christmas paper from Pavlova Papers in my stash a couple of weeks ago and thought I would see how many Christmas cards I could make using this sheet of paper. I also used a 12 x 12 sheet of green American Crafts card as an option for layers underneath the Christmas paper.
The stamps I used were from my own collection of many stamps, including Montarga, Stampers Anonymous, Rubbadubbadoo and others.
This was a fun exercise for me because it made me think about different ways I could use smaller bits of paper. It also helped me to get started with making my Christmas Cards!
In making these cards, I used 1 sheet of 12 x 12 christmas paper, 1 sheet of 12 x 12 green American Crafts cardstock, 13 red base cards (A5) and 4 pieces of A5 cream card, some ribbon, embossing powder, inks and brads. I estimate the cost of making these cards to be about $6 (NZ). Not too bad really, especially if you are on a budget!!
