Tip to Add Layer Of Specialty Paper On A Dime

Tip to Add Layer Of Specialty Paper On A Dime. So many times, we don’t want to use specialty paper for a backing layer due to the waste, but I have tips to get the most out of your specialty paper for layers. Also, the size of the card itself will be a little different to get the most out of a 12 x 12 size paper. 

I created these cards for teammates to celebrate their amazing accomplishments for 22-23 Stampin’Up! Years.

In the video, I share how to die-cut or punch out from the layer so you have less waste. The layer is 4 x 5-½ and an A-2 card size, the front is 4-¼ x 5-½. I wanted to get the most out of a 12 x 12 with the least waste, and I didn’t want an extra border. I liked the gold for the edge of the card. The card base is 11 x 4 score at 5-½ that ¼ inch smaller on the width; not many would notice, and the exact size envelope is just a little loose again. Not many would see the width is smaller than my envelope.

The gold foil sheet is 12 x 12, measuring 4 x 5-½. We get six pieces out of one sheet, leaving us with 12 x ½ strips, which is very little waste. The celebrate layer I die cut in the center of the layer.
