I DID IT! I finally (mostly) finished up the remnants from my Basic Grey Marrakech 6x6 pad. I made 25 cards yesterday, and I thought I'd share some of them with you. It may seem like I'm sharing ALL of them, but no, just a sampling of a few of the varieties.
First, I followed pretty much the same path I did the last time I did this, and made some with the solid papers and banners from some of the cut-offs:
Another variation of the same card:
I used Night of Navy as layers, Navy twine, and Chipped Sapphire for most of the sentiments.
With this next one, I love the mix of blues and greens:
On this next one, I was very pleased with myself for noticing the orange in the blue layer and actually including an orange banner:
(imagine that) and started making some not-banners, and put them to the left of center:
Also please notice this one has navy grosgrain ribbon instead of navy twine. That's because in my haste to stick all these pieces down to the card bases, I failed to wrap the twine around the layers first. Have you ever tried to wrap rustic twine through a tiny slit in the card fold? More than one wrap? I failed miserably and settled on navy ribbon instead.
Here is one of the three-banner ones I made on a navy background:
This one got embossed in white:
This next one was a challenge:
My one horizontal offering:
This next one was the last card I built:
And yes, it's crooked. Hey, it was either the card or the banners ... I had to pick one.
I lied earlier. THIS one may be my favorite of the bunch:
That's 25 more cards for OWH, and one mostly disappeared 6x6 pad of paper. This is all that's left:
So that's it. Now if you'll excuse me, I think I'll go open some of my new crafty goodies and play a few challenges today.
