Sixteen Cards Using One Sheet Wonder

I used the Brushed paper pack for one set of cards and the Pathfinding paper pack for the other.  These are both current Close to my Heart paper packs found in the Annual Inspirations Idea Book and Catalog.  Any of the beautifully coordinated CTMH paper packs work well for these cards.  I find the link to this one sheet wonder template and tutorial on Pinterest.  It is by Jessica and can be found at http://inkitupwithjessica.com/one-sheet-wonder-tutorial.  There are many one sheet wonder templates to choose from on Pinterest.  This one caught my eye and I found it easy to follow and use.  I like the way the cards come out.  You only use one sheet of B&T duos patterned paper and four sheets of coordinating solid papers (two of each of two colors) plus one sheet of white for the sayings and images to be stamped on.  The template illustrates what sizes to cut the patterned paper and which cards they go with (A, B, C, D and E).  The tutorial explains how to cut the other pieces easily and how to put all of the cards together.    You need sixteen card bases.  I used the CTMH bulk card bases or you can make your own out of 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper.  Cut the 11 inch side of the paper into two 5 1/2 inch pieces and fold each of those in half to get two card bases per sheet of paper.  If you don’t have 8 1/2 by 11 paper, trim the 12 x 12 down – be sure to save the scraps for other uses like stamping phrases on for other cards or layouts.   I used a variety of stamps from my collection for the card sayings.

I enjoyed making these coordinated all occasion cards and will move on to some holiday cards next.  I also discovered a one sheet wonder set up in the Close to my Heart “Wishes” card confidence book and want to try that one too.  It looks similarly easy to put together 16 cards (two each of 8 designs).  The instructions and photos begin on page 110 of the Wishes book (Close to my Heart Item # 9041).

Stamp sets of your choice applicable to the occasions you want your cards for; smaller size stamps work best as the white pieces are small rectangles.
