I can not believe that this is week six of the one pad challenge:
How many cards can a card maker make from one pad of patterned paper?
One thing that I have found in making cards from the same patterned paper every week is that my card making time is incredibly focused. I already know what paper I am using, so more of my time is spent making cards rather than rooting around for supplies. I also spent a few moments early in this challenge looking through my embellishments. I have a pile of them on my table that "might just work with this paper" so I am always ready with all the little extras that make each card beautiful.
I am thrilled with how productive I have been and love the results.
This card was a perfect way to use up some of the small scraps on my table. I simply punched out different sized circles and layered them. I love how it looks with all the different patterns together.
This small note card would be perfect to attach to the top of a present.
And I absolutely love these flower rub-ons....nothing says thinking of you like flowers.
That brings the total to 16 cards and 2 tags.
Check back next week for more cards, and maybe even a few more tags.

I have a block pad of patterned paper I recently bought and I'm looking for something to do with them- and found your blog that way. Love the cards you made for this challenge. I have a question: for the larger cards, did you have the patterned paper only on the front or did you stick/glue it to the whole cardstock paper front and back? (Basically, what did the back look like?) Thanks!
To assemble my cards I use a white sheet of cardstock which I cut to size and fold in half. I then attach my patterned paper to the front of the card only, leaving the back of the card blank. I use less patterned paper per card this way. Hope that helps. Have fun making your cards.
