Since February is the time to send a lot of Valentine Cards, I decided to challenge myself to see how many cards I could make out of a 6 x 6 pack of 2-sided card stock. I chose a Doodlebug pack that was mostly Valentine themed and spent the majority of one day making simple A2 size cards for Valentine's Day, Birthdays, and general Hi themes. The following pictures are what I managed to make and the scraps that were left when I had finished. I started out using some card sketches, but when I got down to the end, I didn't have very large pieces, so I had to start improvising. In all, I ended up with 21 decent looking cards, which I have already started using. I left the insides blank, so I could stamp on them whatever the situation required. I love the look of the black matting, as it really sets the individual pieces up. Feel free to let me know what you think.
