Have you heard of a One Sheet Wonder template? I have seen them for a 12 x 12 sheet of patterned paper to make a lot of cards.... but this week I found a template for a 6 x 6 sheet... (thanks to Meg Daves- I Teach Stamping) I don't have much 12 x 12 paper, but PLENTY of 6 x 6 pads!
I need to kick start my Christmas card making and thought that this would be a great way to get some done.
Usually I use A4 card stock (8.25" X 11.75") cut in half for my bases not US size which you need for these cards using the template. Luckily I had two sheets of Hero Arts card (8.5" x 11") and could use the A4 Kraft card to cut the mats - which were 4" x 5.25". The main 6 x 6 PP was from the Christmas This & That by Echo Park paper pack. I used a piece of American Crafts red card for my punched edges and layering mats. The Santa images were from A Vintage Christmas pack by Meg's Garden. The oval and rectangle with the stamped sentiments (A Kaisercraft stamp set) were scraps from cutting the mats. So a very economic way to make some quick cards.
I added a strip of embossing to the top of one of the cards, some ribbon on the Santa ones and some bakers twine on the other two.
And while I had my PP out I made a few more Christmas cards
The paper for this one is from Turtle Dove pack by Kaisercraft. I added a sentiment from a Catherine Pooler stamp and added a shimmery die cut in the corner.
