I recently made some more greeting cards, and I used a technique I found on (good old) Pinterest. The technique is called "One Sheet Wonder." The idea is that you take one sheet of decorative paper of your choice, and then cut it according to some given directions. The result is several cards all using that special paper, with none of the pretty paper wasted.
(Just go to Pinterest and search for One Sheet Wonder. There are directions for different sizes of decorative paper, some 6" x 6", some 12" x 12", etc.)
And here are the cards I ended up with.
The directions show you suggestions for how to use the resulting pieces of decorative paper to assemble the cards. Of course, one can do that, or one can invent some new designs. I followed some of the suggestions, and made some cards with my own designs.
A few close-ups now. I really liked this way of using little tiny 1" squares.
Here I added a piece of doily and a little flower with a brad.
All of the suggested card layouts were quite precise, exact, planned out, centered designs. This was the last card I made, and I decided to do something a little more "haphazard." And I really like it!
I'm sure I'll use this technique again. It's a good way to get a lot of cards made efficiently, and to work in a series.
