OWH Cards

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.

Another one:

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*

Last set:

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!
