Not too long ago there was a post on the Operation Write Home site about using a 6 x 6 paper pad to make a bunch of cards.
I wanted to see how many cards I could get out of a 6 x 6 paper pad. I used My Mind's Eye Breeze and ended using everything in the pad less a small bit that is shown in the last image. I ended up with 69 cards.. I bet I have enough scraps to make at least 2-4 more cards.
Measurements for the cards:
top left and top right use the same size pattern paper, the banner strip was punched at the end using a Stampin' UP! Photo Corners punch, you can use a square punch or just cut with scissors. The box for the saying was based on the saying itself. Card base is an A2 card, I used gray card stock for the base, then a black layer that is 5 3/8" x 4 1/8", then a white layer that is 5 1/4" x 4". The layer behind the banner strip is 2" the banner strip is 1 3/4". I added two brads on one and three on the others, as well as a punched out heart.
bottom left: card base is black A2 size. Yellow layer is 4" x 5 1/4". Black layer 3 1/2" x 4 3/4". White layer is 3 3/8" x 4 5/8". Black layer (under pattern piece) 4 3/8" x 2 7/8". Pattern piece 2 3/4" x 4". I stamped a saying on white and punched it out, then punched out a circle in black to layer it on. I added two brads and a punched out heart.
bottom middle and right (using colors on middle card to describe/cards the same except layer on banner, and red bottom layer on card on right): black card base A2 size. Yellow layer 3 1/2" x 4 3/4". (Red layer on right card is 3 5/8" x 4 7/8") Black layer 3" x 4 5/8". Pattern piece 2 7/8" x 4 1/4". "LOVE" strip is 1" x 3 1/2". Banner is 1" strip.. I punch the end and then cut it to 4". The card in the middle, I cut a yellow layer to the banner and it measures 3/4". It is punched at the end and then cut at 3 5/8". I added some brads and a punched out heart.
This is the empty paper pad and what's left is in that snack size ziploc bag.
My next post with be more cards I made from another paper pad.
thanks for looking ~
have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
