Welcome to Part 2 of my effort to use up one 6x6 pad of paper in one weekend. You saw the first 30 cards here. Now I bring you the next 16.
I had a pile of 17 strips of 2x6 papers, and I decided to mass-produce the batch of cards. Here's what one looks like, then I'll explain:
All of the cards have Kraft card bases. I stuck down all the strips of paper, then I used a Jennifer McGuire technique and applied thin strips of card stock down each side of the patterned paper instead of layering it. This works in at least three situations that I can think of: (1) you forgot to layer, or decided you should have layered, but didn't; (2) you are running dangerously low on your solid card stock, and don't have enough for layering; or (3) you planned to do this. Jennifer does (3) - she plans these things, or at least she makes it look like she did. I would normally be (1), because I forget a lot of things, but today I am (2), as I am dangerously low on Buckeroo Blue, and this seemed like a fine alternative.
Let me show you a few more cards from Wave 2.
Here's another birthday one, using my favorite paper from the pack:
This next one is horizontal, because that's how I cut the pear paper:
Just to mix things up (mass production is no longer fun for me), I left the banners blank on a few cards and put the sentiment in a circle, like this:
I made 16 of these total (all varieties with the strip of patterned paper on Kraft), so today's total is 46 cards. I had 17 strips of paper, but one had to be sacrificed because of poorly-placed permanent tape. :( So sad.
Tomorrow I'll tackle all the small pieces that remain, and hopefully I'll use every last scrap of this paper pad.
Thanks for stopping by!
