Hello. My name is April, and I am a One Sheet Wonder addict!

Recently, I started a card making group for my church. Tomorrow, we will have our first creative meeting. Since many of the women in my group are new to card marking, I created samples that any beginner could make! I used the same one sheet wonder pattern I have posted about previously, and two different paper packs to allow for options.

The cut guide is as follows:
  • 4- 4 x 5.25
  • 2- 4 x .75
  • 2- 4 x 1.5
  • 2- 4 x 3.25
  • 2- 4 x 2 
I suggest cutting the paper into three 12 x 4 strips to start, and then cutting the individual pieces. It really makes it a lot faster.

The first set I made using the Brushed paper pack. I must admit that at first glance, I was not in love with this paper. However, once I saw it in person, not just in the catalog, I saw a lot of potential.

The Budding Friendship stamp set is a perfect compliment to this paper pack. I used markers to color the flowers for an additional pop of color on two cards. But, I kept the rest simple for the newbies.

I also used the Seaside paper to create a more masculine set of cards. I absolutely love this paper!

For this set, I colored the Blooming Heart mini stamp to add a pop of color, but again kept the rest really simple.
