What fun these were and ohhhh so easy to make. I used up nearly the entire My Mind's Eye Boy Crazy 6 x 6 paper pad. There are some scraps left that I am going to cut up and maybe make a scrappy card or two.
I ended up with 23 cards in this batch.
**Measurements down at bottom.
I started by pulling out each sheet and cutting it ~ using the method in the picture below this one. I am using the sketch that is in the upper right corner of the picture.
This is how I cut each sheet. There was two sheets that wasn't usable, I could use the pattern on the one side, but it was like tags on the other. I took one sheet that had the red chevron on it and used it to cut some of the 2" x 3 1/2" rectangles and the other was a top layer for one of the cards.
All the pages are cut and layered onto a dark brown layer.. these are all the pieces paired up.
Laying several of the white pieces for the sentiment, onto a dark piece of card stock when I stamp the sentiment, makes it easier to see and lineup.
I took care of putting foam tape on the back of each of the sentiment layers.
Here all the card tops are completed.. now to put them onto card bases.
This is how I cut each sheet of paper:
