These are a Few of My Favorite Things: OSW

One Sheet Wonders. Years ago I remember making my own printed paper by stamping a sheet of white cardstock full of flowers in different colors, then cutting it apart to make several amazing cards with the pieces. Fast forward 15 or so years to April 2020, when I started doing One Sheet Wonder classes using Designer Series Paper. OSWs are super popular, and you can find scads of fun cutting maps for One Sheet Wonder cards using both 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper and 12" x 12".


When surfing Pinterest, I came across a 6" x 6" OSW by Kelly Kent at mypapercraftjourney.com that really tripped my trigger, so I used it for class in December. The numbers in the map are the card numbers on which those pieces were used.





Here are the cards we made at the class using the template (I call it a cutting map) above:



Super sweet and simple with no frills. That's how One Sheet Wonders start, and you can embellish as you'd like. I added glitter dots on the first card, as an example of what can be done to dress it up.


This spring I pulled out that same cutting map to do a One Sheet Wonder with my team. I grabbed the sweetest little design from the Pansy Petals DSP, and when I saw it I couldn't help but think of the Pierced Blooms Dies for coordination in the new bright and cheery In Colors: Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Polished Pink, and Soft Succulent. Layer the DSP onto Polished Pink, then on the Bumblebee card bases embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder, and how can you resist, really? #socute
