Gift Sets

Well, I finally finished those card sets that my husband asked for as thank yous. I used a One Sheet Wonder (OSW) template for a 12x12 sheet of patterned paper that makes 16 cards. Since my husband wanted 4 card sets, I wanted to put 5 cards in each set, so I had to add an extra four cards with an additional piece of the patterned paper to make 20 cards in all. I think they turned out pretty well. The card layouts for the OSW were a bit simple, so I added stamping on the background, or paper piercing to give them more interest. I had a lot of fun making them, but I have to say that I'm glad I'm finished! LOL Now I just have to decide on packaging. . .whether I want a stationery folder or tote bag packaging. When I finish those, I'll show you the whole finished project. These pictures show each card layout within the OSW. Hope you like them! More importantly, I hope the people who are receiving these like them! Thanks for stopping by today! SUPPLIES USED- Stamps- Green Thumb, Paper Tray, Butterfly Kisses; Paper- DCWV Glitter Stack, Orange, Pink, Dark Brown, Cream, and Whisper White; Ink- VersaMagic in Jumbo Java, Pumpkin Spice, Gingerbread, Tea Leaves, Pink Petunia, and Pixie Dust; Accessories- Paper piercer, grosgrain ribbon, horizontal slot punch, Making Memories brads.

Just beautiful! How could anyone pick a favorite - they're all fantastic. How did you get so many cards out of one sheet of paper? Can you tell I'm new at this? Thanks, Dottie K
