I figured it was time to start another video using my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial. Although, all kinds of technical difficulties popped up when I was ready to start recording. But thanks to my husband, who is very handy with computers, the recording went very smoothly. I've had quite a few requests for another Christmas video, plus I've been needing to get started on my own Christmas cards.
I decided to try a new brand of 6x6 paper. It's called Very Merry and it's from Reverse Confetti. I've used their stamps and die cuts for quite a while and love the quality. So when Reverse Confetti recently started making 6x6 paper pads, I just had to try one. The paper is a nice heavy weight with clean designs, and vivid colors.
The first sketch I started with is from Mojo Monday. I do not design card sketches, but I do figure out measurements for A2 size cards. Go HERE to see how I come up the measurements.
I made 2 cards using this sketch.
