Here is a quick way to cut three cards from a 12x12 sheet of card stock for new card makers. Cut one 4" x11" strip lengthwise and then cut 2 piece's 5 1/2"x8" wide. You will have 2 one inch pieces of scrap left.
Here is the three cards folded.
My husband , Rob, was nice enough to pick me up some scrapbook paper at a thrift store and I made these cards using that paper. ( Daisy d's Bambino Collection) I also used Cocoa ribbon and some scraps from my scrap drawer. the stamps I used are: Baby Love, Universal Backgrounds, True Friends, a Melody, and card chatter-Sympathy. I used the music background stamp to create the music paper with the stamped image over it and I cut around the image. I also used a piece of Maya Road twine. Happy scraping and have a great day.
