The 4x6 Rip Flip

On the Hawaii Grand Vacation, I was honoured to be asked to do a Presentation for the other Demonstrators at the "Share Fair". There were 8 of us demonstrating, and I was sent the "Garden in Bloom" stamp set and English Garden Designer Series Paper to work with. As it turns out, they are 2 of my favourite products in the new Catalogue, so the hardest part was narrowing down my ideas. I showed a few different things, and one of them was an invention of my very own - the 4x6 Rip Flip! With this simple technique, you can make 72 cards from one pack of DSP without wasting a single scrap!
All you do is cut your sheet into six 4"x6" pieces. Then, take a piece and rip it (or snip if you prefer), and then flip one piece over to reveal the pattern on the other side. So quick and easy!
Here are 6 cards I made using the English Garden papers:

I've used the reverse side of each pattern for my cards, but you could mix and match your patterns if you prefer.
Here's a closer look:

The sentiments are all from Garden in Bloom, and I've edged them by dipping them in Versamark and then in gold embossing powder. It's an elegant way to make a punched shape stand out and add a bit of glitz at the same time, without having to add another layer.
I'll be back next time to show you some more of my Hawaii Presentation.
