Birthday Basics Cards

All three cards were made for a One Sheet Wonder Class.  The ladies selected their favorite paper from the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper Pack, and with some creative cutting and layering I was able to plan the class so each lady would get nine completed cards using just one sheet of Designer Series Paper.   A great way to use every bit of paper, and come away with a nice supply of cards too.

The cards were made using coordinating card stock and ink, with the addition of some embossing, punches and ribbon.  Once you know how to cut your paper, the only thing left to do is design your cards.  You can make them for just one occasion, or make a pack of All Occasion Cards, using a variety of sentiments.  In addition to the nine cards, the class also includes a nice box to carry the cards in.  

I found these directions a few years ago when I did my first class and the link should still be available for your viewing.  Click here if you would like to see how I cut my paper.  Thank you to the talented lady who shared this on Split Coast Stampers.  Unfortunately her name does not appear on the directions.
