Today I finally did it! I took the remains of a 6x6 pad of paper and I used almost all of it. GONE! I made 20 cards for OWH using the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch:
It's perfect! I used 1/2 sheets of the 6x6 pieces for the vertical element, then strips of the remnants for the horizontal element.
I won't bore you with all 20 of them, but just a few of which I'm particularly proud :)
I only had one piece of this paper, and I like how much of the work it did for me. You'll also notice I didn't take my horizontal piece all the way to the edges of the card. I did that on purpose, as I thought it looked better this way.
I messed with the brightening too much here. That strip of paper is actually green. Oops.
I made a bunch of these. I liked the Hello with the post card images.
For the rest of these, I made a few with each sentiment:
I got all crazy and layered three strips of remnants on these.
More layering. I did use ALL the remnants, too. *so proud*
See those strips of red and light blue? Those are the whole pieces I have left from the pack. Well, not those pieces exactly, because those are strips, but the remaining whole pieces are those colors/patterns. Since they are in my favorite color grouping right now, I'm pretty sure I'll use them. :)
Twenty cards - not too shabby!
Thanks for stopping by!

That paper looks wonderful on those cards. I never would have given it a second look, but you certainly used it to your advantage.ReplyDelete
So impressive! I love it when you get on a tear and use up (or try to) your paper packs. You come up with such inspired things!ReplyDelete
