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
I hope you’ll try this with your favorite piece of 12” x 12” piece of designer series paper!
I’m going to try it with some of the new Christmas Designer Series paper that is in the new Holiday Catalog. What paper are you going to choose?
