What to do when you don't have enough paper for everyone!

I have Stampin' Up! workshops at my house once a month, and one of my problems, is that I design a card and then I look and I don't have enough paper for everyone to do it EXACTLY the same 10 more times!   Especially with the DSP, there are only 2 sheets of the 'same' paper is pack, and depending on how many samples or trys I make, I might end up being short!  The gals that come like to make the card just like my sample, but sometimes....
I need to give out kits that are different papers, Stampin' Up! makes it easy as usually the pack of DSP coordinates well with each other, you can also turn over the paper to for a whole new design. That is what I usually do when I am at a class, I look at the sample then think, hmmmm, can I turn this over? Will it still work?
 Different words, but the same punch, and the 'shadow' punch behind is the same punch cut in half then pieced together so that just a part of the punch shows.

I used colored staples to hold the flap back on the front, and the leaves were die cut, while the flower was stamped then punched out.
This card the fold back was larger, maybe the yellow strip of DSP was thinner? and I used eyelets to hold the flap back, this leaf has 2 sizes in 2 colors for dimension.  I used the word window punch to punch out the words and the modern label punch to put behind the words.

The top 2 cards also used leaves punched from the Stampin' Up! bird punch so they have a stem and 'viney' look.

Don't be afraid to do a card different than the sample, the sample is just a guide, just an example, it is your card and ultimately all of the choices are up to you!

Thanks for stopping by!
