Sweet on Card Making Formulas!

Karen Wyngaard Karen Wyngaard

Recently, someone asked if you could make cards from the new Sweet on You collection. Of course, the answer is yes--you can use our kits and collections to make whatever you wish. However, I was suddenly inspired to transform my Sweet on You kit into Valentines.

I looked to my trusty Idea Decks for help. Most of our card making formulas use some combination of 8.5x11 and 12x12 papers. Sweet on You includes a dozen 12x12s, so I searched for formulas that used only that size. (For a full list of these cards from past Idea Decks, see the bottom of this post.) Using just four Idea Deck formulas, I made 16 Valentine's Day cards: Nine A2 and seven 5x7" cards.

Idea Deck Vol. 2--7 of Hearts (Four A2 Matchbook cards)

  • Paper A=White "Wood" Print
  • Paper B=Red Plain

Sweet on You Valentines

Idea Deck Vol. 2--5 of Spades (Two A2 Tri-fold cards)

  • Paper A=Champagne Plain
  • Paper B=Brown Plain

Sweet on You Valentines

Idea Deck Vol. 2--Jack of Spades (Three 5x7 cards)

  • Paper A=White "Wood" Print
  • Paper B=Red Plain
  • Paper C=Champagne Plain

When following the cutting diagrams on the back side of each card, be mindful of how you position the prints onto your trimmer so the desired artwork remains intact.

Don't you just love these cards? Be sure to pick up a second Sweet on You collection before they're gone...one for pages and one for Valentines!

Happy card making!
