Are you excited? Not only is it a Mix-It-Up Monday….it’s also time for another One Sheet Wonder! When I Mix-It-Up, I choose one OLD item that is discontinued and a New item from the current catalog. The OLD is the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper that I chose. I used the Fresh Fig color (second color from the left) but it also came in Rich Razzleberry, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide.
The NEW is the sentiment. This “Thank You” is from the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set. I chose it because of the size – it’s big enough to fill in the white space….and because I like the modern font.
When I make my cards I love to add stuff….ribbon…pearls….sparkly gems. I don’t like to leave my cards looking too plain. So it took just about all my self restraint NOT to do anything to these cards and just let them to be simple Thank You cards. Although I did sneak in a few bows….and maybe just a few ovals…..I just couldn’t help myself. Just know I wanted to do more.
Did you notice that one of the cards in the picture is upside down? Yes, it is….go back and look again. I decided to leave it and not retake the picture because, well we all make mistakes and it’s a good test of your observation skills.
Here is a close up of each of the cards….and they are all right side up!!
Now, I bet you are wondering what One Sheet Wonder I used…..or maybe if you haven’t seen my posts with the Time for Tea cards and or here when I made 9 cards…you don’t know that a One Sheet Wonder is when you take one 12” x 12” sheet of paper and cut it up to make multiple cards. I’ve done ones that made 9 and 12, but this one makes 14!! Now that’s a wonder!!
I used this cutting diagram from Craftys.com
UPDATE October 1, 2022: I’ve had lots of requests for the cutting design that I referenced above as it is no longer available on the link. And for the cutting sizes for the mats. So,, to make it easier for you to try this One Sheet Wonder, I do have a tutorial that includes all of that information that your can download for FREE! Please click on this link for the tutorial: One Sheet Wonder – Fresh Florals
I hope you’ll try this with your favorite piece of 12” x 12” piece of designer series paper!

I wish your cards shown were in the 1, 2, 3 and so on order so I could see the numbered pieces that correspond with position of card in photo
Yes, you are right! I did that 2 years ago just after I started my blog and I didn’t really know what I was doing them. BUT….I do write a tutorial for myself of every card I make….so…..If you will email me at email@example.com, I will send you the tutorial that has the pictures of each card and all the dimensions for the One Sheet Wonder pieces and the matting.
Hi Patricia what were the mat sizing you used for the14 cards you made from the one sheet wonder 12×12 paper please.
Yes, I do! I have sent you an email. Please let me know if you have any questions.
I would love to have the measurements of the mats.
Hi Robin. I sent you an email with the tutorial earlier today. So please check your email. Thanks!
Would you send me the measurements for the mats?

Hi Patricia! Just found your 14-card One Sheet Wonder on Pinterest. So excited to try it, but the cutting sketch from crafts.com is not at the link, to click “here”. Is there any way you could please send the cutting sketch & dimensions for mats, etc.? I would greatly appreciate it!
Thanks ever so much!
