Five Easy Card Layouts for you

Thank you for subscribing to Paper Twists. The five card layouts I promised you are on this page.

You can use these simple card layouts over and over again. Change up the Designer Series paper, stamped images, sentiments and embellishments to create cards that look quite different to each other.

The designs of these layouts are rather timeless! And you only need a sheet of 6"x 6" designer series paper to go with your card bases and other elements or embellishments.

Here's one version of the cards I made using these templates. You will see I made six cards instead of five! I wonder if you can see how to make the sixth card after you have made the first five?


6 x 6 One Sheet Wonder Cards

First, choose the designer series paper (DSP) you want to use.

Cut your 6” x 6” DSP like this:

Card Layouts

Supplies to make five card layouts are listed next.

Again, feel free to substitute your own DSP , stamps, cardstock colours etc.

I recommend you label the parts you cut with the numbers of the cards to keep them straight.



 

The next lot of cards were made by Sharon Dalton to show how changing cardstock and DSP can make the cards all look very different.

Thank you for this, Sharon!

There are big numbers on each card. The numbers are not part of the finished design. Lol! They are to help you keep in mind which card you are working on and to match the DSP pieces you cut to the right card.

Here goes:
