Echo Park Paper & Glue - 39 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

A couple months ago, I decided I wanted to make enough Teacher Appreciation cards for the entire staff at my daughter's elementary school. That means around 70 cards. After finishing the Paper & Glue collection from Echo Park, I'm now over halfway there. 

I made a total of 39 cards using my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial. Since I have been working on this set of cards for about a month, I did not record a video this time.


I used a MFT cover up die for many of the cards. Their new collage die is one of my favorites. Because I used the die for the majority of the cards, I didn't have very many scraps leftover. I don't have as much variety in card designs, but I'm okay with that.

For my final cards, I used the leftover pieces that were cut out with the collage cover up die. I didn't use a specific sketch. I just stacked four of the stitched rectangle boxes together and added a matted layer. Pretty easy cards and no waste from the extra pieces of the collage die cards.
