We are bringing it back to the basics today with one free card pattern used three ways!
When you have one card pattern, you can easily turn it into four by simply rotating it 90 degrees in either direction or turning it upside down! We’ve prepared a couple of examples to show you how big of a difference it can make to rotate your pattern.
Here is that same patterned shown above turned on its side, 90° counterclockwise:
And here is that original pattern turned on its other side, this time 90° clockwise:
We took this one pattern, which made it’s original debut with the Kaleidoscope cardmaking Workshops on the Go®, and created three new cards using our Gimme Some Sugar creative collection (see recipes below for a complete list of products).
Our timeless patterns, for both cardmaking and scrapbooking, are more versatile than meets the eye. They are all designed in such a way so you can rotate them to make several different cards and layouts from the one. With the right combination of patterns, papers, Complements, and sentiments, you are set to celebrate and document any occasion!
If you’re not sure how to mix and match these products, we’ve taken the guesswork out of the equation for you! For effortless coordination, simply choose one of our creative collections from our idea book and stick to just those products within the suite when making your cards. It really is that easy!
