I know. I'll bet you are all wondering what the significance of the title of this post is. Go ahead. Take a second and see what it's called if you hadn't already noticed.
Do any of you know what that means? It stands for One Sheet Wonder.
Someone long ago came up with this nifty concept. Meant to be a quick way to create a great quanity of cards quickly, it doesn't work that way for me.
To create 17 cards (one is missing from this set because I sent it to a friend before I took photos), I spent several hours over two days to complete them.
To do a One Sheet Wonder, you start with a single sheet of Designer Series Paper. In my opinion, not all DSPs create lovely cards. The design has to be fairly dense and not all that uniform in order to have a diverse look to the cards, but yet to maintain continuity.
If you look on Pinterest for One Sheet Wonders, you will find a plethora of diagrams for cutting up your single sheet of DSP. I've tried a few different templates over the years, and they all work well.
For me, once I get the sheet of DSP completely cut up, I always mount a coordinating cardstock -- in this case, I used Soft Seafoam -- to the back of each piece. This also reaffirms the cohesiveness, giving you a common color to which you can match the rest of the components for the cards. As you will notice, I brought bacck the Soft Seafoam cardstock in various forms throughout the set.
My problem is that, with each section of DSP a different look and size, I must spend time to figure out the best way to present each one.
So, each card becomes a unique design.
A close friend and I got together virtually and worked on this set of cards. She used a different Designer Series Paper design than I did, and even flipped some of the pieces to the opposite side, so her collection had a much more varied look than mine did.
All that stuff out of the way, following are photos of my 16 (of 17) cards:
