Materials Used:

1 sheet - 12"x 12" Bazzill Classic White Cardstock

Let us Get Started!

Step #1

Cut your 11”x8.5” Bazzill classic white cardstock to 11” this will remove the company product information

Step #2


Cut to 5.5” which is exactly in half.  This will give you 2 card bases for A2 cards.

 Step #3

Score the long side of the 11” x 5.5” card base at 4.25”.

Then fold base in half this created your A2 card blank.

It should look like this!

Step #4

With your 12”x12” sheet of Aruba cut a 4” strip.

Take the 4” strip and cut to 5.25” in length.

Keep left over piece to use for other matting pieces for this card.

Step #5

Center & Glue your 4”x 5.25” piece to the front of your A2 card base.

This will give you a 1/8” border around your card.

Step #6

Cut these pieces as per picture and the quantities.  These with matte your pattern paper and white pieces in the upcoming instructions.

Step #7

Cut the pattern pieces to the dimensions shown in picture.

Step #8

With Classic white cut the pieces and quantities according to the picture.

Step #9

Grab your white 2.25” x 0.75” piece.

Using your acrylic block or stamp platform, center & stamp with your favorite color of ink.

I like to use an archival ink with my sentiments as they dry fast, clear, and in this case used Memento Tuxedo Black.

Step #10

You are now going to glue your pattern, white squares and sentiment to the matting coordinating pieces. Use picture for reference.

 Step #11

Grab your card base already prepared in step #5

Center & Glue your pattern piece with measurements of 3.75” x 5” to your card leaving a 1/8” border.

Step #12

Step #13

Stick your sentiment on your card centering to your liking.

Place stickers of your choice on the white squares, and I added 2 little hearts on the sentiment.

Step #14

The paper used on this card was inspired by a great friend who brought me cupcakes for my birthday recently!  I enjoyed creating this card for the beginners without a lot of tools or supplies but it's also great for the experienced for the layout when you need to make a card fast!
