Card Making Using Paper Packs (No Stamps Needed)

Posted by Amanda Ray on


I absolutely love to have paper packs for all seasons.  I love that all the coordinating work has been done for me.  I also love to stretch my paper as far as I can.  So, if you saw my video for the Stationary Card Box you will know that I needed to make cards, notecards and tags to go inside it.  

I decided to take you along and talk more our card making.  This may give you lots of tips and tricks for making cards.  Don't worry though, we will be covering lots of card making techniques as we go along in our Tuesday series.

For this box we need to make 6 A2 sized cards (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 when folded), 6 3x3 notecards and some tags to fit our pocket.

The card bases are 4 1/4 x 11 folded in half at 5 1/2.  Because I used black card stock I decided to put in white mats for the inside, they measure 4 x 5 1/4.

The note card bases are 3 x 6 and folded in half at 3 inches.  I made mats for inside of those cards at 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches.

The tags are 2 3/8 x 3 1/2, my mats for them turned out to be 2 1/8 x 3 1/4.

Supplies I used are:

Mad For Plaid Christmas Paper Pack

Art Glitter Glue

  • Love your cards and tags. I posted on your FB page that I am having trouble using paper pads. All of mine don’t come with stickers or embellishments. So I’m struggling on what to do with them. I might try the box and see if any PP come with cut a parts. Then part with any paper I don’t like. Thank you so much for all you do.
