Christmas, Handmade Cards

Quick Christmas Cards with the Pick Six Wonder Cutting Guide. and Penguin Playmates DSP

Did you earn the very sweet Penguin Playmates DSP in August during our second round of Saleabration? If the answer is yes, this may be the perfect project for you! And if not, this project can be adapted using any of our coordinating packs of Christmas DSP.

Using a cutting guide like this one takes care of design, gives you a great starting point for creating a quick stash of cards, and looks great too!

You’ll need a selection of DSP (6 sheets of 6 x6), a selection of coordinating card stock (7 sheets of A4), and 1 sheet of Basic White or Very Vanilla, to make 13+ gorgeous cards using this cutting guide.

Here’s a short list of things you’ll need to complete your “Pick Six Wonder” cards…

MATERIAL LIST:

□ 1 pack of Designer Series Paper (You’ll need 6 sheets of 6 x 6)
□ 7 sheets of plain, coordinating cardstock
□ 1 sheet of Basic White or Very Vanilla Cardstock
□ Greeting stamp set
□ Ink pad
□ Punch or Dies (for greetings) and a Christmas Embossing Folder (optional)
□ Coordinating ribbon
□ Adhesive, Paper Trimmer, Paper Snips

Here are the card designs, with a little modification on Design 4 – you can leave these as very simple designs and just add a sentiment, or add fussy cut images and embellishments like I have.

Design 1 (3 cards)

Design 2 (4 cards)

I love that these cards encourage you to use your stash of DSP. It’s so freeing to cut up that gorgeous patterned paper and these card layouts really let it shine!

Design 3 (3 cards)

Design 4 Alternative (3 cards plus an optional 3 more)

Design 4 is my alternate option instead of the Hearts design as suggested on the cutting guide. This uses up the large rectangle pieces and the additional strips you are left over with from Design 3 (don’t cut these strips in half as suggested). You’ll make 3 cards with this design and will have three of the larger rectangles left over. You might choose to make another three cards adding other elements, or save these pieces for a later project.

I hope you are inspired to give the #picksixwonder cutting guide a try – why not invite a few friends over and create together?
