Recently a few New Zealand ladies have been visiting my blog to see my One Sheet Wonder designs (thanks for the comments!), where you use one sheet as the main feature to create (reasonably quickly - depends on how much embelishment etc you do with them!) a suite a cards. The previous ones that I have done have been based on a 12x12 stamped sheet (or one sheet of 12x12 designer series paper).
This time I thought I would do a different size, using one sheet of A4 Whisper White cardstock stamped with my own pattern, and see what template and designs I could come up with. In the end I created nine cards and I used a monochromatic colour scheme - Whisper White as the card bases and Old Olive and Certainly Celery as the coordinating colours. I used the Stampin' Up! stamp set 'Friendly Flowers' to create the A4 feature sheet. Here is a group photo of the nine cards, below this is the template I designed with cutting measurements and below that is a link to an album displaying each of the cards photographed individually.
Feel free to use the template and have a go at designing your own A4 patterned paper to then create a suite of nine cards. If you also make a coordinating box to present them in they make a lovely gift - I did several for Christmas presents last year! I will try to get around to making an image of my measurements and show you how I put my box together to fit my cards in at another time on my blog.
Let me know what you think of One Sheet Wonders (OSW) and feel free to include links to your sites/blogs etc where you have your creations on display as I would love to see what you made!Happy stamping!
