Stampin’ Up! One Sheet Wonder Cards

Yesterday I hosted an online One Sheet Wonder Workshop. I was so pleased that somewhere between 17-20 women tuned in for at least part of the 3+ hour session! We used a One Sheet Wonder template designed by my friend and SU! Artisan Design Team member, Tatiana Tobin.

What is a One Sheet Wonder? It is a pattern or template for cutting a sheet of Designer Series Paper (DSP) into pieces to use on cards. Most are designed for 12″ x 12″ (30.5 cm x 30.5 cm) paper, though there are also ones for 6″ x 6″ paper. The vast majority of templates on the Internet are designed for North American Letter cardstock and have measurement in inches. While they work or can be modified, it’s nice to have some that are designed specifically for A4 cardstock and measured in centimetres.

I decided to use the same DSP and sentiment as Tania, but made the cards my own with an additional sentiment and different embellishments.

Here’s the handout I made for the workshop…it’s got many of the same graphics as Tania’s blog, but I’ve added the measurements and colour-coded the cut lines on the 12 x 12 template. Several of the participants today felt that they were easier to follow than the subsequent pictures.

My 3 biggest tips:
• choose a DSP that works in any direction and has good coordinating colours and patterns on each side
• be sure of the paper orientation when you’re cutting.
• if you mis-cut, just improvise a different design using the pieces you have (that’s what I did on my first set, pictured below)

Have fun with this, and be sure to upload a picture to the Nancy’s Nifty Notemakers Facebook Group! We loved seeing everyones creations during the online session. It was especially fun to see the DSP everyone chose…whether it was current, recently retired or pulled out of the depths of their stash!

Here’s what I used to make my cards. Clicking on any picture will take you to my online store.
