However, when making just one or two cards, the opposite often offers a more efficient use of cardstock.
- Cut cardstock into 1/4 sheets. You can trim the edges later when you know what size you actually need. This works for color and white cardstock.
- Center your punch or die-cut (either in the middle, the top, anywhere...be creative) and cut.
Below is an example of this. I cutout a space for the saying also. Then I embossed the top layer and placed a 2nd negative image behind (blue scallop circle and yellow regular circle). The stamped flower and saying went in the openings, flat to the card base. Then using puffies (my word for dimensionals), I raised the entire front of the card (the blue/yellow piece). A ribbon bow finished off the card.
