The Wonder Of One Sheet Wonder Cards

The idea of One Sheet Wonder (OSW) cards is absolutely brilliant. It's a way to make a lot of pretty cards fast. Not too much detail. Basic greetings. And ONE sheet of 12 by 12 designer paper.

You start off by cutting the designer paper in various shapes. This is the pattern that I am using on my cards today and I will make be able to make ten cards with it.

Once you have the DSP cut up, you place it in various formations on a coordinating cardstock.

You may embellish it with ribbon, rhinestones, brads and such but the main idea is not to  spend too much time on the card and move on. The simplicity makes the Holiday cards perfect target for it as we need to make a lot of them in a rather short period of time. Lets be honest, no matter how much we try, most of us don't get around to making the Holiday cards till Thanksgiving.

Today I am using Merry Moments DSP along with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive cardstock.
The greetings are from the adorable  Cozy Christmas set.
