I am a little different thinking than most, I think. I started off using a color scheme from PTI (colors from the anniversary color challenge) as my inspiration.
I am not one to leave scraps around. I really try hard to consume whole sheets of pattern paper in one sitting - even if it means making 4 or 5 or 6 cards from it. So, when I made the cuts to start this card, I kept going until I used what I had cut.
Here is a visual of what I did. One cut used to make 6 various cards. That is one same measurement cut and not cutting all these at the same time. :) Just thought I would clarify.
Now all I have to do is make the cards and I am done. So, what did I come up with . . . . I think it is amazing at how different yet similar they turned out. Here is the first set:
I used the moss/kraft combo for this card. But to stay true to my original inspiration, I added ocean tides and dark chocolate.
