One Layout Two Ways

 Hi Everyone,

Today I have made two cards using the same sized pieces but using different designer series papers. I have favourite layouts that I go back to time and time again and although the pieces are the same size, you can change it up by moving the pieces around, using different colours and dsp and you will always come up with something unique. For these cards, I have made a birthday card suitable for a male and one for a female.  Great cards to have in your stash, to use as swaps or customer thank you cards. There is also a video tutorial, click on the link below:

For both cards:

2 pieces card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4" (misty moonlight) for the card bases
2 pieces card stock 2 5/8" x 3 7/8", 2 pieces 2 3/4" square
2 pieces whisper white (basic white) card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" for the insides and 2 pieces 3/4" x 2 3/4" for the sentiment
2 pieces of dsp 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", 2 pieces  2 3/8" x 3 5/8" and 2 pieces 2 1/2" square (I have used Well Suited and Hydrangea Hill and used 3 different patterns)
Misty Moonlight ink
Art Gallery stamp set
Simply Scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


Score the card bases on the long side at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish.

Add the largest piece of dsp centrally to the card front and then add the dsp layers to the mat layers.

Decide where each piece is going to go, play about with the layout until you are happy with it. I have adhered the larger piece directly to the card front and then added dimensionals to the smaller piece.

Stamp the sentiment on the smallest pieces of whisper white and then add these to the card front with dimensionals.

Add the remaining whisper white layers to the inside of the card, you can decorate if you like.

I hope you like the layouts and will give them a try.
