Echo Park's A Perfect Winter - 33 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Now that Christmas is over, it's time to focus on some non-holiday cards. Since winter recently started here in the United States, I thought I'd make some wintery cards. I'm using Echo Park's A Perfect Winter collection. The colors and designs are just lovely. There are lots of snowflakes and flowers with a few wood grain designs.

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 33 cards.


I recorded my entire process of disappearing the 6x6 paper pad. The video is sped up 7 times since the full recording time was around 4 1/2 hours, not including any of my planning, prep, or die cutting time. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.



In addition to using the 6x6 paper pad, I also used 12 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 3 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock. 


Here are the pictures of the cards I made, including sketches 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 Echo Park's A Perfect Winter 6x6 paper pad.

  5. Thank you for the templates for the cards. I bought several 6 x 6 pads at a convention I went to. I cannot wait to use these techniques to build my card stash.
