Here I am with design number 2 in my Christmas Card Challenge. I've had a few questions about printing digital sentiments on patterned paper so I hope this little tip helps.
1. Print off one A4 sheet of patterned paper and trim a square/rectangle that is slightly larger that the size you need to fit your card blank.
2. Print your sentiment sheet on to copier paper.
3.Then with repositionable adhesive, adhere the patterned paper square over the top of the sentiment you'd like to print, keeping it as level as you can. I find that holding it up at the window helps here! :)
4. Print the sentiment sheet again on this sheet of copirer paper, by feeding it back through the printer. There you will have the sentiment printed on the patterned paper, all you need to do now is trim to fit your card front.
I made 6 cards from one sheet of A4 using this method! I do enjoy making my supplies go further :)
