2-5 of 100

So, I finished up my 6x6 One Sheet Wonder cards tonight.  I still don't love them but letting them sit overnight made me not hate them as much as I did yesterday.  No matter what I did I just couldn't achieve the "look" I was trying for, but I buckled down and made it work anyway!

I originally found the template for this particular OSW on Pinterest -- here is the link to the original for anyone interested in the template.

On to the cards!

Stamp Sets:  Best Yet (retired), Congrats (retired), Love You Much (retired)
DSP: Delicate Dots (retired)
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black

I'm not sure if you can tell by the pictures but I popped the sentiments up with Dimensionals.  If you look close you can also see the shadow from the screen in my window -_-  The "congratulations" stamped image didn't turn out well, so I re-stamped it on the other side and it was worse.  I have already wasted an unbelievable amount of paper trying to get the look I wanted so I just stuck with it!  I actually "cheated" a little with the 6x6 part of the OSW template.  I didn't like the reverse sides of either of the DSP patterns I used so I just cut both of them.  Now I have another template in reverse of what I used to use again!

As frustrated as I was with this particular project I'm pretty happy with the results.  I like the layouts of the cards in general and would likely use this template for a 6x6 OSW again, now that I've figured out how to really do it.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Fabulous job. I'd love to find a complete set of instructions for an OSW, I find them tricky too, and it's all about proportion. I think you did an awesome job here though!

    1. The hardest part for me was figuring out how I wanted to layer the DSP. I layer everything!

      I found a PDF on SU's site (like, 12 pages) that has all the instructions for a OSW. I think I just searched "One Sheet Wonder" and I got a list of PDF "classes", this one was almost at the bottom. It is a template and instructions for 9 cards and a card tote and it was put together by Nancy Horn.

  2. So cool. What a neat idea. The cards turned out great!
