One sheet wonder.

What you may ask is one sheet wonder.  That's when you take one sheet of designer series paper and cut it into pieces and then use those pieces to make a set of cards.  This sample uses only 1/4 sheet of designer series paper so I guess it's a quarter sheet wonder.  First, here is the layout of how to cut up the quarter sheet of paper.
And here are two sets of cards made using the paper.  This first set used a piece of Birthday Bouquet DSP.  I love the pastel colors in this set of cards.  Very feminine.

This second set of cards used a sheet of Cherry on Top DSP.  This quarter sheet design works great with this paper because the paper stack is already 6 X 6.  These cards are very bright and cheery.  Great for kids.  One thing that you probably can't see in the pictures is that I used an embossing folder on all the cards. 

Did you notice that the card with the three little squares is a little different than the one in the first set?  The design on this paper is definitely directional so I had to turn the paper so that the balloons are still going up in the air.  Be sure to try this sometime.  The cards were really easy and fast to make.  It took longer to decide what color card stock to use than it did to make the cards.
