If I told you you could use patterned paper for handmade cards, not one, but TWO, in under 10 minutes, would you love to see how?
Watch now in my ultra quick video.
I’m focussing on simple and elegant and bright and bold all at the same time! Let’s see these “two-fer” one cards!
I’m calling them “two-fer” since you get two for the time spent to make one!
Which one appeals to you more? The one with the yellow panel or the one with the black panel?

If you’ve been following along with me for a little bit, you already know I absolutely love black, white and yellow for card making. They are one of my go-to colour combos since there is such a wonderful contrast.
I’m always thrilled when anyone who gets a card from me with this combo makes a comment back about how they love it too. If you think they’re great too, you can see another pretty idea here.
Let me show you in under 10 minutes how you can get two stunning cards made.

Now let’s take a closer look at today’s pretty card.
Although you could certainly use all the heart frames and inset them into the heart die cuts, I like the statement it makes when you just pick the one.
Don’t you think these are so playful?
1. Change Your Colour, Change Your Card!
I wanted bold and striking colours for my cards today. You might like to try some softer ones to immediately change the feel of the cards. Maybe light pinks or mint greens for a spring or Easter feel.
2. Use Different Dies
Instead of hearts, perhaps you’re reading this and it’s winter and you’ve got a wonderful snowflake die like you can see in this card. Or use leaves for fall or a butterfly for summer! There are so many possibilities.
3. Switch Out The Patterned Paper
Just as there are almost endless dies, I bet you have a stash or designer series papers too! Try a few of them out behind your die cut window first before you cut them down to make sure you love it!
Time to Get Into Your Craft Room!
Now it’s your turn to dig out a negative die you could use so your pretty patterned paper will show through. Here are the measurements to make two cards at once.
