One Sheet Wonder Idea #3 - 12x12 Designer Series Paper

 One Sheet Wonder Idea #3

- idea inspired by Kathy Bovair and Seongsook's Creations.

Kathy sent me this beautiful card in the mail and I wanted to use the beautiful Daffodil Afternoon paper, in a similar way!

This layout idea uses two 12x12 pieces of Designer Series Paper.  It ended up making 13 different cards in no time flat! 

For this first example, I'm using the FREE Sale-a-Bration #158127 Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series paper

Here are the instructions and measurements

1.  Cut two different pieces of 12x12 (I layered them together), at 4 3/4 x12, 4 3/4 x 12 and the 
bottom measurement is  2 1/2 x 12.

2.  Cut down the two 4 3/4 strips at 3 1/2 measurements.  You will end up with one smaller piece at the end, measuring 1 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Leave the bottom strip untouched for now.

3.  Each 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 piece is cut down further.
Cut vertically at 1 1/4.  
On the 1 1/4 strip, cut horizontally at 1 1/4.  There should be two strips measuring:
1 1/4 x 1 1/4 and 1 1/4 x 3 1/2.
The wider strip, cut horizontally at the 3 1/2 measurement, which leaves you with two pieces measuring:
2 1/3 x 3 1/2 and 2 1/4 x 1 1/4

4.  Cut 12 mats for the pieces to be glued to.  I chose Basic Black.  These measure at 4 x 5 1/4.

5.  Cut 13 card bases, measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and fold them in half like a book.  I chose to use Very Vanilla, Flirty Flamingo, Pale Papaya and Crushed Curry.

6.  Glue the four different pieces onto each mat.  So I didn't have any overlap of the same pattern, I made sure to have the top left be the opposite side as the bottom right.

Once everything is glued onto the mats, glue the mat to the card base.  There will be one cardbase left over.  We will use this later.

7.  I cut out sentiment layers from the "Scalloped Contour Dies" and stamped "Thanks" from the "Ornate Thanks" stamp set.  I put dimensionals onto the back and placed them onto the front of the card.

8.  Along the bottom of the 12x12 piece of DSP, there was a strip left over that we hadn't cut.  Now is the time to trim this for the card inserts.  Cut vertically at 4 inches.  The three pieces should measure 2 1/2 x 4.

9.  We are going to cut these down one step further.  Cut each piece in half.  Each piece should measure 1 1/4 x 4.

10.  Cut 14 card inserts measuring 4 x 5 1/4.

11.  I glued one of the strips along the bottom of each card insert and then glued the insert into the card base.  There will be two card inserts left over.

12.  There are few pieces left over that we are going to use up and make one more card.

There should be four strips of patterned paper, two card inserts and a cardbase.

Onto one of the card inserts, glue three of the strips of DSP randomly.  Attach this to the front of the cardbase.  Once again, create a sentiment to layer on the front of the card.

13.  Glue the last strip of DSP onto the card insert and attach it to the inside of the card.

VOILA!  You have now made 13 different cards using two pieces of 12x12 Designer Series Paper!

This would make a beautiful gift to send to someone 
in an acetate box!
