Are you looking for a quick way to show off some patterns in a designer series pack? Is it hard for you to choose which one to use? Then look no longer. Give this Cut & Shuffle technique a try. You will become addicted!

Stamp Set – Merriest Trees (photopolymer 162043)
Ink – Blueberry Bushel Classic Stampin’ Pad (147138)
Paper including cutting measurements

Blueberry Bushel Cardstock [CS] (146968) 3 pieces 8 ½” x 5 ½” scored and folded at 4 ¼” (card bases), 8” x 3”

Basic Whites Cardstock [CS] (159276) 3 pieces 5 ¼” x 4” for inside card, 7” x 2 ¼”

Winter Meadow Designer Series Paper [DSP] (162133) Berry design and all over leaf design one piece 5 ¼” X 4” of each design

Snowflake Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper [SDSP] (162147) White speckled design 5 ¼” x 4”
Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels (158130)
Deckled Circles Dies (162286) third and fourth from smallest
Take Your Pick (144107)
Paper Trimmer (152392)
Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755)
Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)
Bone Folder (102300)
Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (149653) or Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (150673)
1.     Score and fold the three card bases. Burnish the folds with the bone folder.
2.     Stack the two pieces of DSP and the DSP, lining them up carefully. Cut from some place along the top of the rectangle to some place along the right side. See the photo below.

3.     Now cut from the diagonal just created down to near the bottom on the left side. See the photo again. You now have three pieces of each pattern.
4.     Lay the pieces out so that a piece of each design is with the other pieces. See the photo below

5.     Adhere these down to the card bases with Multipurpose Liquid Glue so you can briefly move them into place. See finished card samples.
6.     Die-cut three circles from the Blueberry Bushel CS with the fourth largest Deckled Circles die.
7.     Stamp the greeting three times spaced out on the strip of Basic White CS with Blueberry Bushel ink. Die-cut out with the third from the smallest die.
8.     Adhere these circles to the Blueberry Bushel circles and then mount them to your card fronts with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
9.     Use the Take Your Pick tool to apply three Iridescent Rhinestones to each of the Basic White labels.
10.  Stamp a message on the 5 ¼” X 4” pieces of Basic White CS if desired and adhere to the inside of the card.
See how easy it was to make three beautiful cards? Try this technique again with other designer series papers. If you want to use the reverse side as well as the front side of a paper, you have to have the reverse side be one of the three pieces of 5 ¼” x 4”. I tried just turning one piece over. It doesn’t work due to the angles we have cut.
