Eleven Gorgeous One Sheet Wonder Cards With Flight & Airy Paper

one sheet wonder cards with designer series paper

Let me start out by saying that last night’s one sheet wonder cards are so pretty and easy to create. You are going to be so happy you chose the Flight & Airy designer series paper for your free sale-a-bration item. If you didn’t get this paper pack, you missed out because it is beautiful.  I’ve created a few different cards with this paper pack and I haven’t been disappointed with any of them.  Last night I created these 11 cards from just one sheet of the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper.  There are 6 fun fold cards and 5 regular cards using the left-over die cut pieces from the 6 fun fold cards.  In the photo I’m only showing 6 of the 11 cards I created as the group is just too big to get a good shot of all of them together.

I showed you a card Wednesday, February 28,  on my blog using the Sale-a-bration Softly Sophisticated bundle and told you I would be doing that fun fold in my class last night.  If you missed that blog post, you can view it HERE.

Let’s Take a Closer Look at These Eleven One Sheet Wonder Cards:

To create the peek-a-boo windows, I used the Stylish Shapes dies as I wanted to show you all the different windows you could create with the dies.   First up are the circle dies.   I created 2 of the same shaped windows as I have 2 sets of the Stylish Shapes dies, so demonstrating these went much faster.  These cards are quick and easy to put together and with the Sale-a-bration Flight & Airy designer series paper you can create a bunch of cards in no time.  With the Go To Greetings stamp set you can create these cards for so many different occasions and if you choose a different sentiment for each card you would have a very nice assortment of cards when you need a card for a specific occasion.

You can see the Z-fold portion of the card when it is open, and you can also see how we achieved the peek-a-boo portion.  The card base is the Boho Blue and is 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ and the Basic White cardstock is 5 1/4″ X 8″ scored at 2″ and at 4″.  All these One Sheet Wonder fun fold cards were created the same way with the same size card bases and inside cards.

Next up is the Squares and you can see how I used the Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder on the square piece that is matted onto the square we die cut out for the Peek-a-boo window.   On the sentiment pieces for these cards, I die cut the larger banner die out of the Boho Blue cardstock and the smaller banner die was used on the Basic White cardstock.

Again, here is the view of the inside with the squares.  You can determine which shape you prefer your windows to be.  You might want to consider the element that you use on your shape; either hand cut from designer paper or a stamped and die cut image.  It should fit within the perimeter of the die cut out piece; if it overlaps or is larger the peek-a-boo portion will not work and your card will not open.

Of all the shapes the diamond shape is the smallest, you need to use a smaller square on its side to fit into the perimeter of the card. The larger square on its side was too close to the edge of your card and not recommended.

For the sentiments on these cards, I showed different ways to use the Stylish Shapes Banners. The one on the left uses the larger banner die cut for the sentiment and the smaller banner die cut in half, giving the visual of it spanning across the large sentiment banner. For the sentiment on the right, I just added a 1/4″ strip of the Boho Blue cardstock and trimmed the ends.

Here is the look you get on the inside with the diamond shape.  Each has a full-size Basic White on the inside, so you have plenty of room to stamp or hand write a sentiment or note inside.  I used the leftover pieces from the Flight & Airy designer series paper across the bottom edge to tie the front and inside together.

Now you were probably thinking what are you going to do with all the left-over shapes you die cut out from the fronts?  I’ll show you how I used each shape creating 2 cards of each shape.  Each card has the Basic White piece on the front embossed with the Softly Sophisticated embossing folder.  I didn’t want to cover up the pretty designer paper, so I just added a swap of the bird and flowers that I hand cut from the printed papers.

It might be a little hard to see but I used the Everyday Details dies for the larger circle die cut that is under my printed die cut circles.  This die has little dots all the way around, which is slightly visible.

For the square cards I used the larger birds from the print and just hand-cut them out and popped them up in the corner of the square.  I did create all my cards as birthday cards because I do send out a lot of birthday cards each month to team members.

For the smaller squares which were the diamond shapes on my peek-a-boo cards, I attached then to a Boho Blue cardstock piece that was embossed with the Softly Sophisticated embossing folder.  I then added another smaller square die cut on its side to give that diamond shape over the top of where the 2 squares meet.  This gives the illusion that the printed paper was a rectangle that went across the card front.

I used the Iridescent Pearls on all the cards to accent them.  These go perfectly with this paper and the embossing folder.

These were the ones I created before the class; so, these you could say were my prototype cards.   This is a similar print to the one I used during the YouTube live class only the background is pink.  I created half the cards with Boho Blue cardstock and half the cards with Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I did create 11 cards but with that many cards it is hard to get them all in the photos, so I just show 6 of the 11 cards.  These were done exactly as the ones above and in the video.

Sale-a-bration is now over and done until next year; but you can use any designer series paper you have on hand to create these cards.

(Check out what I’m talking about in the photo below.). Yes, the bottom ribbon storage system has the twine/thread spool holder inside; you will just need to slide it out of the cube to get at the spools when needed.
