The Classic 2×4…..


One of the easiest card layouts is what I call the 2×4.  Just like the lumber version, it’s a great foundation, divides nicely when cut from 6×6 or 12 x 12 papers and goes together quickly!   Cut your paper 2×4 and layer onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ card stock.  In this card, I used Cherry Cobbler and embossed with the star folder.  (it looks like the circle and greeting are vanilla here but they are really Sahara Sand)

I was inspired by this project in the CardMaker magaizine this month. It’s a stitched embroidery hoop by Tami Mayberry:


The Warmth & Cheer papers are perfect for this Americana card!


Here’s a brighter version using the same papers but with white and Real Red card stock:

Add whatever you want to the circle!  If you still have the 2-1/2″ circle punch that retired, it’s quick and easy along with a heart punch. For me, I used the circle framelits along with the Perfect Pines framelits and heart framelits.

If you have the tree punch from last year, that would be cute too!
