One Sheet Wonder Christmas Card Set

Thursday, December 18, 2014

My favorite way to start a card is with a sketch, and Viva la Verve has a sketch challenge for December that I couldn't pass up--a One Sheet Wonder Challenge.


I had never even heard of something like this before, so I was interested in seeing if I could do it. I decided to go for a vintage look using some Tim Holtz Blueprints stamps, colored very roughly with Copics. My supply list is at the end of the post.



I didn't take a photo of the inside, but each card is stamped with the same Christmas sentiment.

This was definitely a challenge for me, and it was pretty cool to use every single inch of a 6x6 piece of paper, but I think I prefer winging it when I make cards, even if it means there is a little waste involved. ;~)

Thanks for stopping by, and have yourself One Wonder-ful weekend!

I'm entering these cards in the following challenges:
Viva la Verve December 2014 Sketch Challenge
Simon Says Monday: Anything Goes
Simon Says Wednesday: Winter Inspiration
613 Avenue Create #102: Anything Goes
Sugar Pea Designs SPD12: Anything Goes

I've never seen this done with a 6x6 before. 12x12, yes. Cute designs! It's a fun challenge!
