(60-Second Video Tutorial) 3 Easy Peasy Cards

Posted by Graphic 45 03/13/2018 32 Comment(s) Cards,Tutorials,Videos,#SimplyG45,

Hello, G45ers!

 Have you ever found yourself in a pinch and needed a last minute card?  We know we have, more than once or twice!  If you answered yes, this is the perfect post for you.  Today we have an incredible tutorial where Einat Kessler teaches us how to create 3 cards with one 1 paper with this 60-Second Video Tutorial.  All three of these shabby chic cards were created with our Secret Garden - Deluxe Collector’s Edition, and we are loving everyone!  So let's jump right in!  


One Page - Three Cards

By Einat Kessler


Hi dear crafty friends!

Einat here with another one-page wonder project to inspire you. Today I have a solution for times when you need a card but don’t have a lot of time to create one. Well… here is a fast and easy way to create not one but three cards!


All you need to create these three cards is one 12x12 double-sided cardstock and your stash! All the embellishments on these cards were created from leftover pieces and punches. You can also use stickers, flowers ribbons and whatever you have in your stash.



Tip #1: Keep your leftover cardstock pieces. You never know when you’ll need them! They are great for embellishments and punching.



Tip #2: One piece of paper can have many looks as long as you change the shape. These all started from the same size piece of paper but a simple change in folding made the results completely different.

Three cards from $1.00 piece of paper that look so intricate?! I will use this technique for Easter cards with the Seasons and Time to Flourish collections...I also subscribed to Einat's YouTube channel as she shows more tricks with embellishments from scraps. Thanx Gr45 for yet more inspiration.

While I love the intricate, involved projects that are on the G45 site, sometimes it's nice to wa tech something quick and easy for a change. I especially love Einat's tutorial because it's such an economical use of the paper.
