Artistically Inked, Thank You Card, One Sheet Wonder Technique, Stampin' Up!

I have not done a "One Sheet Wonder" in a long time. When I've done them I've often just used a half sheet of card stock but here I used a full sheet. It was quick and easy and I got 4 cards out of the deal!  I found this card here

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Fresh Freesia card stock for the layer.  Then I took a half-sheet of Soft Sea Foam and I cut it into 8 strips so I could tape one to each side of the card. I only needed a hair of it showing.  So you can cut your strips as small as 1/2" each. 

To make my "One Sheet Wonder" I took a full sheet of Basic White card stock and stamped all over it. The  "Artistically Inked" stamp set was used here. I used Flirty Flamingo for the larger flowers. Highland Heather was used for the smaller flower and a really small flower was stamped on the inside of the Flirty Flamingo flowers. The leaves were stamped using Soft Sea Foam ink. And the dots were stamped using black Memento ink.

The "thanks" is from the same set and was stamped using black Memento ink. I cut my sheet to 3-3/4" x 5-1/8".  The Soft Sea Foam strips were cut at 5-1/8" long x 1/2".  And the Highland Heather piece was cut at 4" x 5-1/4".

I taped the Soft Sea Foam Strips to the "One Sheet Wonder" piece. Then I tied a ribbon around it. I like to wrap the ribbon around the piece (the ribbon is about 6" long. I use snail tape first and than add scotch tape to make sure it stays in place. Then that piece was taped to the Highland Heather piece and then that was taped to the card base.

A piece of ribbon was slipped under the taped ribbon and a knot was tied.  And the card was done!

Not only is it a "One Sheet Wonder" but a quick one at that too!  Now I have 4 cards that were made in hardly any time at all! And I love the colors. I'm SO ready for spring colors. All of our snow is melted but it's still very brown out there. 

This was a very fun card to make and I really like "One Sheet Wonders"!

Thank you SO much for taking your time to stop by and see today's thank you card and fun technique,

To assemble the card, I taped the Soft Sea Foam strips to the
