Sheetload of Cards

Patterned paper!! Raise your hand if you have a stockpile of it. I decided that I needed to use mine up. I had been blessed with box full by a friend of mine some years ago, but I have hardly used any of it. I recently discovered the Call Me {Crafty} Al YouTube channel and was inspired by her concept called Sheetload of Cards. Guess what it uses… you got it, patterned paper.

The July 2021 Sheetload of Card sketch creates twelve mini slimline cards with a postcard type base and the fold on the panel above it. It uses up two pieces of 12×12 patterned paper. I used a purple and pink theme for this sheetload. I opted to dry emboss the base card to add a bit more interest.
Cutting the paper by using the instructions, one gets six of each kind – one paper as the larger panel and the other as the smaller one. In this sheetload I was able to use some ribbon from my stash too.
I completed the cards by die cutting the word Hugs out of the white sentiment spot and then inlaying the word again cut out of dark purple cardstock. I love die cut inlays and this really looked great on these little cards.

Here is an image of the card open to show where the personal message goes. I have cut some more batches with this design, so look for some more variations in the future.

  1. You did a wonderful job with this patterned paper. Your gift cards are beautiful, and I like that you made two types of cards with reversed patterns. You did a great job, Monica!

  2. They look fabulous, Monica! I especially like that you were able to create so many cards at once. I DO have tons of DP, and would like to use it, as well. Thanks for the inspiration on how to get that accomplished! hugs, de

  3. CraftyAl is fantastic. I watched her back in 2019 and 2020 but haven't done anything with her designs this year. You are inspiring me to do that! I love the colors in this card. It really is a great way to use up patterned paper.
