2011 Holiday OSW Card #1

     I’ve been deliberating as to how best show the One Sheet Wonder class cards to you.  Shall I post them all in one?  Or, one card at a time?  After much hemming and hawing, I’ve decided that one at a time is best.  Although each of these cards have a common thread…the DSP and colors…each is unique on its own.  I’ve kept each card simple and scrappy.  Thus utilizing my card stock to the fullest.  The simplicity of each card allows for additional layering or embellishments but, to complete in a class setting, keeping it simple is best.

     Without further ado, here is Card #1:

100_3798     I’ve adhered the 1” x 4” strips of Frostwood Lodge DSP (love this DSP) to a mat of Marina Mist.  The sentiment is from the retired Occasional Quotes.  Two Cherry Cobbler snowflakes from the Snowflakes Set #2 Sizzlits Dies and a snip of Cherry Cobbler Quilted Ribbon.  The Whisper White card base is the perfect back drop for these festive colors.

     I designed and have worked with this template for cutting the DSP for the last three years.  Each time, I tweak it to fit my needs.  I have to say, this is the best one I’ve done yet :)  If you are interested in the template, I’ll be happy to share it with you (cause I love to share).  It’s easy enough to change it up to fit your needs.  Just let me know in the comments or email me and I’ll get the template to you.

     The class was so much fun!  I’ll be having another on November 19th.  It will feature all snowmen and snowflakes (my favorites) and another piece of the Frostwood Lodge DSP.  If you are in the Tidewater region of Virginia and would like to join in the fun, check out my website’s Events page for additional information.

     Thanks for stopping in today.  I have plenty more OSW Class cards to share over the next several days.  I hope you’ve been inspired to start your holiday greeting card stash.  It’s never to early to start!

  1. This is lvoely Leslee. I can't wait to see the rest of the set. I still can't get my head around using one sheet of DSP on so many different projects!
