Word block cards

In my California Paper Goods auction order I got some odd green cardstock. I decided to cut it all up for A2 and A1 cards. I think I paid 80 cents for the card stock and got probably 4-5 dozen card bases out of it.

I wanted to see if I make some cards last night with the odd green and I was thinking what paper I could use with it and remembered a K & Company Brenda Walton stack I had and thought it might go well with the odd green. The stack is Chocolate Neapolitan and I think it is perfect for this green. I had some scraps so I didn't even have to cut any full sheets. I really don't know what the paper is called when it has blocks of words...so I just call it word block paper. I really like using word block paper because it makes doing sentiments fast and easy and all the cards are a little different while being the same.

Here are the cards I made.

  1. I think that paper goes perfectly with the green! Good eye. At least you remembered you had some paper to match it before going out and buying some more :)
