I don't know how everyone feels about patterned paper, but I am definitely intimidated by it most of the time when trying to make cards, especially large bold patterned paper!! I've been searching on Pinterest for cards made with patterned paper & came across a pin for a One Sheet Wonder tutorial on the Craftsy website. (http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2015/11/one-sheet-wonder/) I picked out a bold 12 x 12 sheet of vintage looking patterned paper in my stash that I would never dream of using on a card, & went to work cutting all the measured pieces shown in the tutorial. I used black card stock scraps to back them. The sentiments came from sets by MFT , Simon Says, Avery Elle, and Recollections. I made 14 cards (2 of which are not shown..ran out of room in the picture) and I was so pleasantly surprised with the results that I will definitely repeat this process with another 12 x 12 sheet of patterned paper. The picture does not really do them justice!! Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!!
