To get started, I used the "Just Because" 20 card workshop from the Wishes Card Confidence Program (9033). This book gives you individual card patterns with lots of samples and rotated pattern ideas. The workshop sets include cutting patterns for several cards so that you can complete a set of cards using 2-6 sheets of paper. Faster, simpler, easier!
I haven't finished my complete set, but here are a couple cards to whet your creative palette.
The work table...not as black, white and pink but you get the idea.
