This simple card uses half of an 8-1/2 x 11″ piece of card stock folded in half, and then some fairly small pieces of designer paper mounted on a base of black card stock cut at 3-3/4″ x 2-1/2″. The patterns were selected out of the Summer Smooches collection from Stampin' Up!©.
To make this homemade card I cut each piece of patterned paper to the same size (3-1/2″ x 2-1/4″), and then cut them each into the same size blocks. Now you have enough blocks for making three similar cards just by mixing and matching the patterns!
(HINT: Don't forget to check out the back sides of these two-sided papers for more possible combinations!)
You can trim them down a little if you'd like. I trimmed 1/8″ off the blue piece along the top to allow more black to peek through.
So don't throw those paper scraps away, put them to good use!
