If you’re looking to make a quick greeting card by hand, patterned paper is a key ingredient! Today, I’m making just such a card using supplies from the October 2022 SCT Sampler, which is a monthly subscription from Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine that includes amazing samples of products from the industry. It is a very economical way to add to or build up your supplies since there are always reusable items such as stamps or dies in the subscription. I purchase this subscription myself so I am not receiving anything from them to promote or advertising for them, I just love the products! Here is the card I made.
This particular card features patterned paper from Carta Bella called, “Welcome Fall.” I just used my paper trimmer to cut it to the sizes I needed. This is a very traditional looking card with everything centered.
To embellish the card, I used the orange enamel dots that came in the sampler. Of course you can certainly add more embellishments if you’d like. Perhaps you could use some foam tape to pop up the ‘Hello Fall” panel. I didn’t do this because I want to be able to send it through the mail without extra shipping, but I did adhere a piece of cardstock to the back of the “Hello Fall” panel just to give it a bit of dimension.
Finallly, I used the back of the patterned paper to cut a tiny tag because I thought the card needed something else. Placing it on the bottom, right corner of the panel helps draw the eye to the inside of the card.
Red tag draws the eye.
Once the front of the card was complete, I added the leftover strip of patterned paper to the inside.
