on from yesterday’s post, I played with creating a One Sheet Wonder
using a 6″x6″ sheet of Designer Series Paper (DSP).
I used out Notecards
& Envelopes, and made six cards from one sheet.
The first DSP I
used was from the Serene Scenery DSP Stack, but I felt the designs were
too bland for a One Sheet Wonder.
Once I’d made all six cards, I felt
they needed extra embellishments e.g. flowers, butterflies, etc.
other problem was that I chose a design that had the sky on one side
which resulted in having some pieces adhered vertically instead of
I certainly recommend avoiding directional patterns when
using this technique, because it adds another factor to the
chose a Mint Macaroon sheet from the Blooms & Bliss DSP, and I cut
all the shapes, and stamped all the sentiments.
Then I adhered
everything to the appropriate layer.
For the video, I chose a Blushing
Bride sheet from the Blooms & Bliss DSP, prepared all the Blushing
Bride Cardstock (CS) layers, and the Whisper White CS for the
prepared everything this way so I could show the process of cutting the
DSP but without having to make my subscribers sit and watch me glue
twelve pieces of DSP to their CS layers!
the Blushing Bride DSP and CS, and finished
making those cards.
Now I’ve successfully made a video showing a 6″x6″ One Sheet Wonder, I’ll go back and see if I can make one using a 12″ x 12″ sheet.
This style of card is definitely best suited to a fairly busy design on the DSP.
I feel it stands on its own much better than the DSP as shown in photographs 3 and 6, but could take extra embellishments if desired!
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my experiments with One Sheet Wonders. I’d love to hear your feedback whether you feel this is a technique worth trying, or if you’re like my hubby, you don’t see the point! LOL!
I wish you a happy Mother’s Day if you’re in a part of the world that’s celebrating today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
