If you have never made a card before, you will love these One Hour Card Class workshops! Because we are making 5 cards in this class, it may take longer than one hour. However, we will complete all the cards, inside and out, with a matching envelope – ready for the mail! I host card classes every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. You pick the day and the time that suits you. Message or email me for more info. I hope you will consider joining me as we learn how to get the very best from the products that we buy. You can order SU! products online and have them shipped directly to your door. Simply click on the “Shop Now” button in my banner (or I can order for you). I would be most happy to be your Canadian demonstrator.
Guess I haven’t explained what a One Sheet Wonder is. A One Sheet Wonder is where you take one sheet of pretty paper, cut it up, and make it into a bunch of wonderful cards! The piece of paper that you start with can be a pre-printed patterned paper or a paper that you stamp a design on yourself. The paper is then cut up according to a template and made into a variety of cards. Start simple then upgrade your cards to WOW with extra embellishments. There are lots of templates of different sizes on the web to help make cutting into your favorite paper easier!
Please refer to my CardA for the One Sheet Wonder pattern and cutting instructions following Rebecca’s pattern. For some reason, I can’t get to Rebecca’s page. Here are her cards on Pinterest – maybe you will have better luck! Now on to the final card, Card E or the 5th card of 5. Card B is HERE. Card C is HERE. Card D is HERE.
Prepare card by cutting Cherry Cobbler cardstock at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”. Fold in half for a side fold card – a bone folder gives you a crisp fold. Stamp and sign the back. Set aside.
Remember the writing tablet? Perfect for the inside of cards. Fold a piece in half.
Stamp a phrase and over stamp with an image if desired. Adhere to inside of the card.
DSP panel measures 2” x 2-3/4”. The Old Olive layer is cut ¼” bigger and the Cherry Cobbler is cut ½” bigger than the DSP piece. This is just a guideline – you can cut each layer a bit smaller if you want. Set aside.
Cut a Crumb Cake panel at 5-1/4” x 4”. Run through the Cable Knit embossing folder. NOTE: You will notice in the pictures that I stamped the phrase on the Crumb Cake panel before I ran it through the Big Shot. I found it hard to read because of the humps and bumps on the Cable Knit embossing folder so I changed it in the end to be a label. It is suggested that the card stock be lightly spritzed with water on both sides before putting it in the folder to relax the paper fibers so that they will stretch and not break while being embossed. Because the folder is so thick the Sandwich is a bit different: Regular platform – cardstock in embossing folder – cutting pad. Adhere to card front.
Cut two strips of Crumb Cake cardstock each 1-1/4” x 3-1/2”; one Old Olive at 1-1/4” x 6” and one Cherry Cobbler at 1-1/4” x 2-1/4”. Set the pieces to be cut on the Big Shot – two pine cone backs, small bow, two pine cone fronts, and two medium branches. Cover with wax paper. Place dies on top. Sandwich is: Magnetic platform – cutting pad - cardstock – wax paper - die with cutting blade down – cutting pad.
Set the pine cone backs aside. Cover the small bow, two pine cone fronts, and two medium branches with Versamark, leaving a bit of one end un-inked. By doing it this way, you have something to hold on to while heat embossing. Heat emboss with Iridescent Ice embossing powder – quit embossing the minute it is melted to avoid burning. Repeat to finish embossing.
Adhere the backs of the cones to the fronts using the fine tip glue pen. Set aside.
Cut Old Olive cardstock 4” x 1-1/2”. Stamp the ‘Sparkle’ phrase in the middle.
Use my template to trace out the label pattern.
Apply mounts. Color the word ‘Sparkle’ with the Wink of Stella. Set aside.
Ink half of the DSP panel with Versamark. Heat emboss with Iridescent Ice embossing powder – quit embossing the minute it is melted to avoid burning. Repeat for the other half. Adhere to the Olive panel then to the Cobbler panel. Adhere to card front allowing room for the cones and bow. Add the phrase below the panel.
Adhere branches to card front.
Apply glue to the bottom part of half the bow and adhere to the top of the pine cones.
Thread a charm with 6” of silver cord. Tie a knot close to the charm. Slip one piece of the cord under the bow and tie a knot. Thread the ends back through the charm hole. Trim cord of necessary. Glue the other half of the bow.
Make an envelope using the envelope punch board. Decorate with stamp images.
