Make 10 Template

There is an excellent demo by Selma Stevenson on pages 14 to 17 of the Stampers' Sampler Take Ten Volume 111 issue called Make 10. Selma has come up with a way to make 10 cards from one stamped piece of cardstock. For the next ten posts, I will show you my ten Christmas cards using her template. The photo above is a picture of all 10 cards.
Begin by splattering off white cardstock with navy acrylic paint. Once dry,overstamp with four different stamps and four different ink colors.

Light bulb 02067.A page 7. Used Vivid Red.

Pine sprig 09114.E page 35. Used Vivid Vintage Green.

Leaf 02183.D page 247. Used Vivid Olive.

Berries - 02171.F page 249. Used Vivid Ultramarine ink.
Turn cardstock over and copy the template using a pencil - start by tracing into fourths first then draw the smaller pieces. Once you have done that, cut into fourths first then continue cutting the pieces apart. Make sure and number each piece on the back as you cut them apart.

In case you can't read my measurements on the template, here they are:

Number 1 and 2 are 51/2" x 41/4", then ripped on the diagonal.

Number 3 is 11/2" square - there are three of them.

Number 4 is 11/4" x 51/2".

Number 5 is 11/2" x 51/2".

Number 6 and 7 are 41/4" x 51/2" then ripped in half.

Number 8 is 2" square - there are two of them and one narrow piece that is 1/4" x 51/2"

Number 9 and 10 are each 13/4" x 4".

Cut 5 sheets of 81/2" x 11" red cardstock in half. Fold and randomly stamp the front with the berries 02171.F page 249 using Versamark ink.

Now we are ready so we will start with Card #1 on my next post. A nice thing about this template is you can use printed or double sided paper if you are short of time.

Make sure you come back, or better yet, become an e-mail subscriber and have all my posts sent directly to you! You just can't miss the next 10 posts!
