one pattern paper - three cards

Hello crafty friends, Nicole here.

This is for all who love to use pretty paper but do not like all the leftovers piling up or if you want to make thee cards at once. :-)

I wanted to try if I could take one (almost) 6x6 paper and make cards without having leftover scraps.

  • Stacked Pierced Ovals
  • Kaffee / Danke Chipboard
  • pattern paper from the Sending Sunshine Kit
  • clear droplets by Pretty Pink Posh
  • lovely tags XS
  • Grüsse XS / sentiments XS
  • Jungle Fever
  • doppeltes Danke / thanks twice
  • mini Danke / mini thanks

Use shape dies to get a frame and an inside part of your pattern paper to make two cards. Stripes of paper can be used as a simple background. Spice it up with a cute critter. :-)

If you use pattern paper with a lot of different colors and you don't own matching inks, papers or pens, try to add neutrals like white, gray or black. They make your cards less busy and help the paper to stand out. These chipboards that look like wood veneer act like neutrals as well.


There's a new monthly challenge going on and we would LOVE to see what you create. Just grab your blue supplies and have fun :-)

Have a lovely day! Thanks for stopping by :-)


  1. Love these!!! Brilliant design Nicole. :o)

  2. Your cards are always brilliant - glad you're in the team (a team of stunning crafters)! :-*

    1. Thank you so much, Tanja! It really is an amazing team :-) I'm very lucky!
