Effortlessly Transform 6x6 Paper Video Tutorial:

You can watch the video tutorial about how I made the four cards that I designed using just one sheet of the Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper cut at 6" x 6" below.

If you have a problem watching the video on my blog you can watch it on my YouTube Channel by clicking here.

Gather Your Supplies:

To get started, gather the following supplies:

  • 6x6 Designer Series Paper: Choose a collection that resonates with your style and preferences. The vibrant patterns and colors will add an instant wow factor to your cards. You can also cut a piece of 12 x 12 pattered paper down to a 6 x 6 as I did today with the Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper.

  • Cardstock: Select coordinating cardstock colors that complement your chosen Designer Series Paper.

  • Paper Trimmer or Scissors: These tools will help you accurately cut your papers to the desired sizes.

  • Adhesive: Use a strong adhesive like double-sided tape, glue, or adhesive runners to secure your papers in place.

  • Embellishments: Consider adding ribbon, sequins, stamps, or die-cut shapes to enhance your card designs.

  • Sentiments: Choose sentiment stamps or stickers to personalize your cards with heartfelt messages.

Choose a Card Design:

With your supplies ready, it's time to decide on a card design. Here are a few ideas to inspire you:

  • Diagonal Squares: Cut your Designer Series Paper into a 3" x 3" square and then cut each square on the diagonal and arrange them on a cardstock mat or two in a as shown below. Attach it to card base and simply add a focal point or sentiment.

  • Squares are In: Cut your 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper into 3 x 3 squares and attach them to a coordinating cardstock mat cut slightly larger. Attach a strip of coordinating cardstock to the card base then attach the matted DSP square to the card front. Stamp your sentiment onto the coordinating cardstock to finish the clean and simple card design.

  • Simple Layered Cards: Cut your 6x6 Designer Series Paper into a smaller square or rectangle and adhere it to a cardstock base. Add a sentiment and a few embellishments to complete the look.

Experiment with Patterns and Combinations:

One of the joys of using 6x6 Designer Series Paper is the variety of patterns and combinations available. Don't be afraid to mix and match different papers to create unique and visually appealing designs. Experiment with contrasting or coordinating patterns to add depth and interest to your cards. Play with different layouts and orientations until you find the perfect arrangement.

Add Finishing Touches:

To take your cards to the next level, consider adding finishing touches. Here are some ideas:

  • Embellishments: Enhance your card design with embellishments like ribbons, sequins, or die-cut shapes. These small additions can make a big impact.

  • Embossing: Use heat embossing to add texture and dimension to your cards. Choose a stamp design, apply embossing ink, sprinkle embossing powder, and heat it with an embossing heat tool for a glossy, raised effect.

  • Coloring: If your Designer Series Paper features line art or designs with white spaces, consider coloring them with markers, colored pencils, or watercolor paints. This personal touch can make your cards truly unique.

Personalize Your Sentiments:

The sentiments on your cards provide an opportunity to add a personal touch. Choose sentiments that resonate with the occasion or recipient. If you prefer, you can handwrite sentiments for a more personalized feel. Experiment with different fonts, colors, or stamps to match the overall theme of your card.
