11.6.2010 – Limelight Project Parade Day

It is November’s Limelight Papercrafts Project Parade day!

The entire Limelight design team was challenged to use one 12 x 12 piece of paper to make a set of cards.  I, of course, bent the rules a little.  heehee.

I decided to use 4 pieces of 6×6 paper to make 5 sets of holiday cards.  YIPPERS, 5 card sets (16 cards total)!!!  Amazing right.  If you have ever visited the Splitcoast Stampers website, there is something called a One Sheet Wonder (OSW) template.  From one sheet of 12×12 you can make a whole set of cards (generally around 12 or more).  That doesn’t include the card bases.

I generally do not have much 12 x 12 paper hanging around unless it is card stock.  So, when I found a OSW 6×6 template HERE, I was super excited.  To make it work and to add a little interested, I opted to use some solid card stock as well.

Here is the list of my basic supples:

2 – 6×6 of Mitten Weather paper
1 – 6×6 of Olivia paper
1 – 6×6 of kraft paper
1 – 12×12 of gray cardstock
1 – 12×12 of pink cardstock
Bows & Holly stamp set
Find the Joy Itty Bitty stamp
Ivory & Brown burlap string
Togetherness buttons
white gel pen
charcoal Colorbox chalk ink

I also used the Spellbinders Lacey Squares & Labels 14 dies, the Seeing Spots & Snowflake embossing folders by Cuttlebug and some EK success & Martha Stewart border punches.

This was an A.Maz.InG way to create a ton of holiday cards without using a lot of different product.  Love that!
