Inside The Lines: One Sheet Wonder


For all my non-crafty friends and visitors, let me explain why I have called this project one sheet wonder. It's mainly because I have one 12x12' special designer paper for all these cards you see below, this one is called 'inside the lines'. I don't mean the card stock that makes up the base and panels, I am referring to the beautiful paper with designs on it, that you see me showcasing below. There are eleven cards in total, how amazing is that?

Now if I was really technical, I would have probably sized each pieces of paper and give you exact measurement. But in fact, I didn't measure any of the pieces this time, I actually didn't plan on making eleven cards. I started with a plan on making one or two cards, but I just could stop at one or two, and I couldn't bear the thought of wasting even an inch of this beautiful paper. So every piece I cut out, I just found a way to case it in a card. However, if you are looking for specific measurements, search of one sheet wonder on Pinterest, there are heaps of tutorials and templates to be found.

The paper doesn't come as you see it below, its basically a black and white print, which is great because you can colour it in as you please. I have coloured with watercolour pencils and aqua painter to give it the water colour look. I love how each card looks and feels different as I have used various card stock and embellishment to compliment each piece of designer paper. 














Thank you for taking the time to visit, hope to see you again soon.

    1. Hi Jackie, sorry for the late reply. I actually didn't cut by measurement, totally free hand, found a way to use every bit of the paper.
