Daisies are one of my favorite flowers… when I saw the Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper with the pretty daisy designs on some the prints they instantly became the papers I wanted to use for my swap cards.
I love the simplicity of the design with the single daisies scattered through the 12″ x 12″ design.
Note: Usually when I design a card using designer paper, if the print is large I use larger pieces of the paper for card designs, if the design is small I use smaller pieces of the paper for card design. Both types of card designs will showcase the beauty of the papers.
I wanted to cut the paper into small strips but with the placement of the daisies they would be cut off and/or placed far apart. I realized if I cut the designer paper on an angle, the daisies would not be cut plus they would be closer together on the strip.
If I turned the paper on an angle I could use my trimmer to cut the ends of the paper, but not the center of the 12″ x 12″ paper. If I use some sewing tools (long ruler, cutting mat & rotary cutter) I could cut the whole sheet (see below video for tips).
Tip: Don’t worry about the width of the strips when cutting.
