March 2024 Sheetload of Cards: A Batch of Beautiful Cards

Hello, today I am here to show you my take on the March 2024 Sheetload of Cards. Sheetload of Cards is a monthly card sketch created by Alicia of the Call me Crafty Al YouTube Channel. She creates a new sketch every month. I have made cards using her sketches before, but it has been a while. The printables are free and she provides the exact instructions for supplies and how many cards you will have at the end. This month, the Sheetload of Cards sketch creates twelve cards.

What is needed?

This month the sketch requires three 12×12 sheets of patterned paper and two sheets of colored cardstock. One also needs twelve cardbases, either pre-made or made from letter sized cardstock. The design is in landscape format. I chose three patterned papers from my stash and cut the pieces as per the guide on the printable. One of the designs I chose is bold and two are secondary designs. I opted for a bold purple cardstock to matte the central patterned paper. Rather than use a strip sentiment as per the printable, I chose to use die cuts. I made “thank you” cards as I can always use those. I used kraft colored cardstock as my cardbase.

What I also love about the Sheetload of Cards is that mostly no additional supplies are needed. If you have paper, glue and some sort of a sentiment, you can make them.

How I made the Sheetload of Cards

Firstly I cut the patterned paper and the purple cardstock as per the cutting guide on the printable. I then added Scrappy Tape to all the pieces. I prefer to use tape for these sort of projects. The 1/8 inch version of tape works best for me so that I can lay it right along the edge. I really don’t like corners and edges of cards that are not adhered properly. It took me a while to add the tape to all the edges of all the little pieces.

Once all the tape was on, it was easy to assemble the cards. In order to not get myself confused, I laid them all out before adhering the pieces together. The March 2024 Sheetload of Cards sketch makes six unique cards – two of each kind for a total of twelve. I used the Spellbinders Popular Sentiments dies to cut the words “thank” and “you”. I did six in white with a black shadow and six in black with a white shadow. Using the Spellbinders Petite Floral Potpourri dies set, I cut twelve white leaf clusters to embellish the bottom left corner of the focal rectangle.

If you are a papercrafter, I hope you will try the Sheetload of Cards by Call me Crafty Al. The sketch is a great jumping-off point, but personalization is always possible. An added bonus is that one gets to use some of the patterned paper that we all hoard.
