One Sheet Wonder Cards – Card A - One Hour Card Class 032 OHCC032

The above picture shows the cards we will make using one sheet of 6” x 6” DSP (designer series paper).  The first thing we need to do is cut our 6” x 6” DSP following Rebecca’s One Sheet Wonder pattern(101projectswithrebecca.com). We will get 5 cards from just this one piece of DSP (Cards A to E).  
I am using Merry Moments from the Holiday 2015 catalogue but any DSP will work, this is just what I had at the 
time I was working on these cards.  Make the long cuts first then the crosswise cuts.  

Be sure to mark each piece with the corresponding letter using a post it note or write directly on each piece lightly with a pencil. 

One Sheet Wonder Card A - Joy: 

Let us start making Card A.

Prepare card by cutting Old Olive 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 or apply an address label.  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.  

Adhere tablet paper to inside of the card.

Cut a Mossy Meadow panel at 5-14” x 4”.  Run through the Framed Tulips embossing folder.  Adhere to card front.

The DSP panel for Card A measures 2” x 3”.  The Cherry Cobbler layer is cut ¼” bigger, the Old Olive is cut ½” bigger and the white layer is cut ¾” bigger than the DSP piece.  This is just a guideline – you can cut each layer a bit smaller if you want.  Set aside. 

Punch the scallop circle from the center of the Cherry Cobbler layer.  Set aside.

Use the Mossy Meadow marker to color the word ‘Joy’.  

Huff on it then stamp in the center of the white panel.  Punch out with the circle punch.  Use the markers to ink the holly and berries stamp.  Huff on it before stamping under ‘Joy’.  Adhere to the scallop circle. 

Cut gold cord at 20”.  Wrap around two fingers twice or so. 

Then wrap around 3 fingers a couple of times or so.  

Pinch together and tape or glue dot to the back of the circle. 

Trim off any tails.  Apply mounts towards the bottom - I used a mat board.  Set aside.

Mount layers together.

Adhere towards the top left side of the card.

Die cut 2 small pine branches from Mossy Meadow cardstock and one medium branch from Old Olive cardstock.  Sandwich is: Magnetic platform – cutting pad - cardstock – wax paper - die with cutting blade down – cutting pad. 

Adhere the branches to the card front in a pleasing manner.  

Cover the ends of the branches with the circle. 

Add three pearls.  Here's a little trick to space your pearls or rhinestones evenly - use your mat pack if you are lucky enough to have one as it retired 4 or 5 years ago.  The pearls and rhinestones fit perfectly inside the largest holes, helping you line them perfectly straight on your card. 

Make an envelope using the envelope punch board.  Decorate with stamp images.

Stay tuned for Card B coming soon.
