one sheet wonder

Have you ever done a "one sheet wonder"? I did my first today!
A one sheet wonder is a technique where you take one sheet of card stock - mine was
8 1/2" x 11" whisper white - and stamp images randomly all over it in a pleasing pattern.
Next, you cut the sheet up into various "blocks". To give you a better idea of how this is done refer to the template pictured above.
You are left with different sized "scraps" to play with.
It may seem a bit confusing at first, but it really is fun!
All of my card bases are 5 1/2" x 4 1/4", and I have added various embellishments to them. You can keep it simple as I have done or add lots of bits such as, brads, die cuts, ribbons etc.
If you have any questions let me know!
Oh, and the adorable box I made to house the cards was designed by Heather Summers!
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
