Hi! How are you today? I bit chilly this morning running my youngest to school but it should warm up as the day goes on. Fall is my favorite time of year – I love seeing all the color and the smell in the air on a crisp fall day just can’t be beat. I made this card for a swap I was in using the Z-Joy Fold combination.
It combines two of my favorite sets – Vintage Leaves and Lovely as a Tree. I needed to make 8 of these cards, so I also incorporated the One Sheet Wonder technique. For that technique, I took an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped all over it with the different leaves from the two sets in 3 different colors. After you have finished stamping, cut it up. In my case, I cut the sheet into 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 rectangles – which yielded exactly what I needed. What I love about this – no two cards are exactly alike!
For the Z-Joy Fold, here is what you do:
Base – 4 1/4 x 11″ – score along the 11″ side at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4. Fold up on the 5 1/2″ score and down on the 8 1/4″ score line.
For the Joy Panel – 3″ x 8″ – score at 4″
Attach the back of the Joy Panel to the back of the Z panel so the opening overlaps the “Mountain” fold at 8 1/4″
Add an element to tuck the front of the Joy Panel (in my case it is the leaf on the lower left) behind to help the card keep its shape.
Pretty easy to do and oh so cute!
Hope you enjoyed today’s card!

Hi! Thanks for sticking with me through four posts of One Sheet Wonder. I did have fun making all these cards and think the final set would make a wonderful gift. At a minimum, I have built up my card stash for the new year! My Tin of Cards is now full!
Today I have the final three cards as well as the cut map I used for my 12×12 Designer Paper and a picture of all 12 cards.
First up, this Hello card. I did add another designer paper to this card, the polka dot paper is from the Subtles Designer Paper stack – I truly LOVE color family paper stacks – they give you every color in the family and the patterns can be used for just about any project. The sentiment is taken from the Tin of Cards stamp set. The flower is made using the Botanical Bloom framelits and the center of the flower is accented with a sparkling enamel dot from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit.
Next up, this cute little Just Because card. Hard to see in this picture, but I added a sequin and a rhinestone to the blue flowers nearest the center of each square. It adds just a little interest to the Designer Paper and the card overall. I embossed the background using the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder (which is retired). The sentiment is from the Tin of Cards, punched out with the Washi Label punch and popped up on a large oval.
And finally, the last card. Have I mentioned that I like pockets? This is a cute little pocket on the front of the card that holds our sentiment. A little tag adorned with ribbon and one of the 2015-2017 In Color flowers. Once again I used a piece of the designer paper from the Subtles paper stack and a sentiment from Tin of Cards.
There you have it – the last of the One Sheet Wonder cards. Here is the cutting map that I used for my 12×12 piece of Designer Series Paper:
And lastly, a complete picture of all my cards in order from 1-12 following the pieces on the map above:
Hopefully from the last two pictures, you can get an idea of what I did. If you need any more information or clarification, please ask!
So, what do you think? Are you glad you stayed with me over the past two weeks?
Thanks for stopping by!
