Sunny Garden Cards

Original cards design for class
Alternate card designs

Today I am again showing how I turned the original card I offered at my monthly stamp class into two different cards.  The second card uses the same Designer Paper, I just turned it around and used the other side.  Having two designs to choose from on the paper really makes it easy to design a different card.  I also used a different punch on my Poppy Parade strip in the middle, and a new sentiment and ribbon.  The third card uses the same cardstock for the card base and matte layer, but a different piece of DSP from the same Sunny Garden pack for the top layer and the butterflies.  

My Stamping Timesaver:  This is such a great way for me to get a lot of cards made each month, and shows how easy it is to create new cards with very similar materials.  I always try to cut the materials for more than one card at a time.  I find that once I find a design I like it saves time if I cut materials for several cards at once.  When making cards with the leftover materials,  I can just turn the DSP to the other side, add or subtract ribbons, change punches, sentiments, and embellishments, and I find it fun to see how I can create something different with the supplies I precut.
