Another card using a One Sheet Wonder piece. Tomorrow, for those of you who don't know what a One Sheet Wonder Sheet is, I will show you tomorrow.

The little squares here on this card are from the One Sheet Wonder Sheet. The words are from the VERY fun "All Holidays" set. I have gotten SO much use out of that set! I stamped the words in Perfect Plum.

I used the new "Square Lattice" embossing folder. it's got such a cool look to it and if you turn the embossed card stock over it has an entirely different look to it. This kind of reminds me of paper towels! I am anxious to try out some other fun things with this folder. And of course I will share them with you!

I sponged the edges of the word piece and the embossed piece using Pale Plum. I thoughe the Perfect Plum would be a bit too dark and would get lost in the Pale Plum card stock layer behind it.

It's such a vintage looking card, isn't it. Though when you mix the right purples and greens together you get a vintage look.

I have 4 more birthday cards yet to make plus an anniversary card. Then I'm sure I will be swamped next month with graduation cards. But that's ok, Stampin' Up! came out with a brand new graduation set called "Go Graduate." And yes, I did buy it. I didn't own a graduation set before. And this one is just TOO darn cute!! I will have some fun making cards with it but I do need to research some of the schools in the areas to know what their colors are.

I think my friend will love this birthday card. I was happy with the way it turned out.

Thanks SO much for visiting today.
Be sure to stop by tomorrow to see how that One Sheet Wonder is done. You will LOVE it!

I know what 'one sheet wonder' is but look forward to your post tomorrow anyway. There is always something new to learn.
Have an awesome week.
