One Sheet Wonder #1

What is a One Sheet Wonder?   One Sheet Wonders (OSW) are basically one sheet of patterned paper (or stamped paper) that is cut up and used as the feature element to create a number of cards.  This is a quick & easy way to create several coordinated greeting cards without using an excess amount of your designer paper.

This template I created uses an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of patterned paper (in comparison to most templates I found which used a 12" x 12" piece of patterned paper) and will yield 9 cards. This is great for those of us that like to hoard our paper. The sheet is evenly divided into 4 sections measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and then cut (or torn) as the measurements shown in the picture to the right.

All products were purchased through Stampin' Up.  The DSP paper is "Cottage Wall" (retired). Other papers used are Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Orchid Opulence (retired).  Other items used are Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Eylet Border Punch, Scalloped Square Punch, Rich Razzleberry Polka Dotted Grosgrain ribbon (retired) and a variety of different stamps.

To see each of the cards individually click here to go to my gallery displaying them all separately or view them via the slideshow below.
