or a tale of how Rachel failed... AMAZINGLY!
I have always liked to try new things, and I have known about the existence of one sheet wonder cards since I very first started creating cards.
For those of you that don't know what I'm talking about, 'one sheet wonder' cards are where you use one piece of decorative paper to make multiple cards- with no waste!
there are lots of tutorials out there, and lots of different results, so it makes it easy!
I highly suggest choosing a paper that is double sided, because then you have even more possibilities!
now... here's the FAIL part of my OSW creating....
I found an amazing tutorial, and really liked the look of how she divided the sheet of paper. The tutorial didn't go into card blank size, so even though the tutorial was in inches, I totally forgot that American Greetings cards are usually a different size to those in the uk!
so I had all my paper cut, and when it got to assembling, there was a big UH OH! followed by a few expletives, as I realised even though I could solve the card blank issue by making my own (which is something I do regularly anyway), I wouldn't have any envelopes to fit them!
Luckily, one of my very best friends, and a fellow creative who lives in the USA came to the rescue, and posted me some envelopes so I could complete the set.
this is the reason that even though the cards were completed quite a while ago, and I'd shown you some sneak peeks over on my Facebook page, the finished project didn't appear!
thank you so much Lina for saving the day! (if you want to check out her blog, she makes amazing quilts and is a fantastic colourist too!)
The tutorial I followed, by the way is THIS ONE that I found on BluPrint.

|and here is the stamped envelopes to go with the cards! I used all but two of the stamps in the set to stamp on the envelope flaps. |

I hope you have enjoyed seeing these cards, and will possibly give OSW cards a go yourself!
