Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today. While it might not require a lot of tools or create a specific effect on your project, it will create a WOW!!!!! I love One Sheet Wonder Card Sets because you can get LOTS of cards from just one sheet of 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. Well today I’m going to show you how you can get about 40 cards with one pack of the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack. How amazing is that? Now I know 40 cards sounds like a daunting task but not when you are making multiples of the same style and when you are only sticking with a few colors.
You have seen me post about these cards over the past week. You can check out those individual posts here:
All of these cards use less than one sheet from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack so that means I was able to create 4 each of these 6 cards (4 sheets of each pattern in the stack)! That makes 24 cards!!!!! Of course, all the left over scraps could be used for another card, right?
How cute are these??? All of the strips are 1/2″ wide. I started with one strip towards the middle and stuck it down. Then I just worked my way out. There is no true technique to this, just play around and stick some strips of paper down! You could do this with any scrap pieces of Designer Series Paper you have laying around! 🙂 I know you have some! Some of the cards, I stuck to a few colors and others I used all of them! After you lay a few strips down, trim the edge and you can use that piece in another spot.
I was able to create 6 cards in this style so now we are up to 30 cards from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack. There is still three patterns (4 sheets each) left in the stack as well as scraps. That is where you get the last 10+ cards. You could use these to re-create some of the styles above or create something totally new. Again, after you are done using the big pieces, use the scraps for more quilt cards!

One of the reasons I love this style of card making is that I knew the colors I would be working with because they are listed on the front of the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack so there was no guessing or wondering. I pulled out those ink pads and cardstock as well as a few of my favorite greeting stamp sets and went to work! Also, I love that I was able to create cards for all occasions – Man Cards, Girl Cards, Birthday, Sympathy, Wedding, and Just Because! Love it!!!
