April 5, 2011: One Sheet Wonder Card #1

Pin It Now!
This is card #1 of my One Sheet Wonder boxed card set. What I chose to do for each of the six cards was make each one a different holiday or use; this is a Get Well Soon card. I LOVE Sincere Sentiments; truly the most useful of all of SU's sentiment sets. I know I've said it a million times, but I really do believe that if you have Lovely as a Tree and Sincere Sentiments you are SET as a cardmaker (although Elements of Style is a nice compliment). I just really like the idea that with this one box of cards you are set for six different occasions. It would make a great gift or you can spread the cards out for six people and keep the box as a memento. :)

I do all my boxed One Sheet Wonder card sets the same way; I choose a DSP for the template, two complimentary cardstocks/inks plus a neutral (usually Very Vanilla or Whisper White) as a base, and one ribbon. Then I change up each card to make it coordinate with the set yet still be unique. Here, I used a bit of sponging and a brad to gather the ribbon. It's simple yet fun.

I was just so pleased at how dramatic the colors are. I guess I even impressed myself. :)

  1. Had never seen "OSW" cards done like this, but like the idea. They turned out nice.
