Hi! Happy Friday! Today I have a One Sheet Wonder (OSW) to share with you using the Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper in the January-April Mini Catalog.
I had wanted to create a 6″x6″ OSW to help my customers use the papers they received in their Designer Series Paper Share for this Mini and for Sale-A-Bration. Here is my cutting layout for the paper:
Cut the 6″x6″ in half so you have 2 pieces that are 3″ x 6″. Cut one of the pieces in half so you have 2 pieces measuring 3″x3″. Cut the second 3″x6″ at 4″, so you have a 4″x3″ and 2″x3″. Cut the 4″x3″ into 3 1″ pieces – keeping them in order.
Here is Card 1:
The base of the card is Basic White Thick cardstock, measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4″ and folded. The 3″x3″ DSP is matted on a piece of Soft Suede cardstock measuring 3 1/8″ x 3 1/8″. The layer behind is Soft Suede cardstock measuring 2″ x 5 1/2″ and embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. The sentiment is from Charming Sentiments in the Annual Catalog and stamped with Soft Succulent Ink.
Here is Card 2:
For Card 2, I flipped over the Designer Series Paper to make a masculine card. I also decided to do the Book Binding Technique – which is very easy. The base of the card is Basic White, measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and 5″. Fold as normal at 4 1/4″. Fold up on the 5″ score line. Attach of piece of Burlap ribbon using Tear & Tape to the front of the card between the two folds. Then use two strips of Tear & Tape on the inside between the two folds to adhere the 3/4″ strip to create the binding. Attach the two pieces of Designer Series Paper to a piece of Soft Suede cardstock measuring 3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″. Attach to the card base. Stamp the sentiment from Charming Sentiments in Soft Suede ink on a scrap of Basic White and die cut with coordinating die. Stamp the trees from Campology on a piece of Basic White measuring 2″ x 3 1/2″ in Evening Evergreen ink. Use a Soft Suede Stampin’ Write marker to color in the trunks of the trees. Attach to a piece of Soft Suede card stock measuring 2 1/8″ x 3 5/8″ and adhere to card front. Die cut a deer using the Grove dies from Early Espresso scrap. Attach to card front Attach sentiment at bottom.
Here is Card 3:
I love this layout – and I am sure you have seen it in the past here on my blog. But if not, I highly encourage you to use it as I believe you’ll love it as much as I do. Attach the 1″x4″ pieces of DSP to 1 1/8″ x 4 1/8″ strips of Soft Suede cardstock. Similar to the DSP, you can start with a piece of cardstock measuring 3 3/8″ x 4 1/8″, then cut into 3- 1 1/8″ strips. The base of this card is Basic White Thick cardstock measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded. You can stagger the placement of the strips as I did, or you can align them across your card front. Using the large flower from the Two-Tone Flora stamp set, stamp the base of the flower in Crumb Cake ink and the details in Soft Suede ink. Die cut with coordinating dies. Stamp the leaves in Soft Succulent and die cut with coordinating dies. Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink on a scrap of Basic White and die cut with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes die. Attach the flower and leaves to the card front and then attach the sentiment.
Here is the FaceBook Live I did showcasing the cuts and how each card was made:
