Reverse Confetti's Very Merry 6x6 Cards

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.

I made a total of 36 Christmas cards using Reverse Confetti's Very Merry 6x6 paper pad.


I used 25 sheets of 8 1/2" x 11" solid cardstock. Here are all the leftover scraps from the paper pad.


The video is sped up 9 times. The real time was just under 8 hours; not including die cutting time.



I've included individual card pictures, along with the sketches used and measurements. Operation Write Home sketches are the only ones that already provide measurements. For all the other sketches, I simply figure the measurements out on my own, for what works for me. All of my cards are A2 size. Go HERE to see my video explaining how I determine card sketch measurements. All cards are made using Reverse Confetti's Very Merry 6x6 paper pad.

  1. Thanks, Kristie, for all your hard work and sharing. Your love of design, color and generous nature shines through in all your cards. I don't usually take time to comment, but I do Pin lots of your cards. Yours is one of the few blogs I make sure to check as new posts come in. I'm off to watch the video, which I'm sure is as inspirational and fun to watch as all your other ones. Thanks, again.

    1. PS: Looks like you have enough in your tiny scrap pile to make a " strip quilt" card. Your smattering of leftovers always brings a smile to my face.

    2. Thank you, Lucy! You are very sweet and I appreciate your kind words. I seriously considered doing a final quilt card. But the patterns in this 6x6 are on the larger size and I don't think it would have worked for the quilt card.

    3. Well, that's just another reason YOU make videos and I don't! [insert smiley face of your choosing here}

  6. Hi kristie. The cards you have made are just beautiful. As for the paper pad i couldnt resist and had to buy it straight away. I love that it has a softer christmas feel to it. It also has great unisex patterns in it. I donate cards to a local hospice so its great that they are not over the top cutesy patterns and these will be great for all of their patients. Thanks robyn
