What's Your Angle?

Published on 12 March 2023 at 10:07

Hello, my crafty friends!  I hope you had a great week and aren't buried under snow right now.  So far, we have dodged the snow here.  Are you ready to get crafty?  I sure am!  This week I worked on a different style of card than I usually make - hey, it is good to think outside the box, right?  I am calling this project What's Your Angle cards.

I hope you will give this super easy set of cards a try!  If you do, I would love to see what you create!  Have a great week!


What's your angle-Card set 1

Card set One:  I started with a 4" x 4" piece of Designer Series Paper (any DSP you have will work with this type of card) and a coordinating mat of 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" then just laid it on the top of the card base and trimmed the DSP with my paper snips at a different angle, giving each card a unique look.  Very simple to do and every card looks different. Embellish and Stamp Greeting of choice on your cards.  Don't forget to decorate the inside of the card and envelope too!

What's your angle Card 2

Card Two:  I cut 1" DSP strips with my paper trimmer, laid adhesive sheets down on a 4 x 5 1/4" piece of cardstock and did different angles with those strips leaving approximately an 1/8" between the strips and then added guilded leafing in the spaces between the strips.  Add a greeting and you have a stunning card.  (I will add one later when I know who/what occasion I will be using.  This is also a great way to use up all those scraps of DSP.

Card set Three:  I cut  a piece of black and white designer series paper to 6" x 6" and colored it with my Stampin' Blends (the colors I used are: Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and Garden Green) and then tick marked it with a light pencil mark at 1 1/2" on each side starting at the top left, bottom right, turned cardstock 45 degrees and repeated making two more tick marks.  Then, I placed it in the trimer and cut from top left to bottom right at the 1 1/2" tick mark and then bottom left to top right. Those two cuts gave me four cards from one piece of DSP.  Then I added a mat to the four pieces, the mat was 6 1/4" x6 1/4".

What's your Angle-Card 4

Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) 3 3/4" x 5 place it in your paper trimmer at any angle you want and cut it once on the 5" side and once on the 3 3/4" side and then add it to a mat base of 4" x 5 1/4" add it to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" (scored @ 4 1/4" on long side) card base and you just made a wonderfully unique card in less than 5 minutes!
