Another OSW set featuring The Precious

Standard

A week ago I’d cut several sheets of new paper using the OSW Tutorial on Operation Write Home. A few days ago, I received my first ever roll of “The Precious”, which is in fact 3M Scotch Double-Sided Foam Tape. It allows for dimension on cards without being too thick or bulky.

I decided to add this plus some Baker’s Twine to a new set of cards.

(The one on the bottom right is a card I built for Thursday’s blog so is sort of a before.)

This is a close up of the first card I made with the new supplies.

Another OSW card set Part 2

So, I’m totally digging these One Sheet Wonder Cards on Operation Write Home.

Today’s cards are from a set I did using two different 7 Gypsies single side sheets of paper. I backed eight with light blue and eight with a rich red. These are the red ones – I posted the blues yesterday.

Here’s a single card close up –

OWH One Sheet Wonder Cards using Template Take 2

Standard

Operation Write Home put up a new tutorial, showing info on One Sheet Wonder cards. They included a template on how to cut a 12 x 12 sheet of paper (created by Seongsook Duncan) so that you have the bits and pieces to make 8 cards.

I decided my second group would be made from the 7 Gypsies Victoria Fernwood I just got.

I went digging for the solid colors I would  use for layering and found a lovely rose and a bright sagey green – four pieces of each. These were both 4.5 x 6.5 sheets. I cut my base layer in all the colors (4 x 5.25) and got gungho, adhering the colors to my flecked cardfront. I got done with six of them and realized I’d skipped an important step – I’d forgotten to cut out the sentiment layer from the solid bases. No problem – I’ll grab a couple more sheets of each and cut them out separately. Were there any more sheets of either color? Of course not… I cut the sentiment shape from the remaining two and decided to just start assembling what I had and leave the sentiment issue for later.

In the end, I went back to the banners can save the world route and put a thinking of you on strips of white. That worked for three cards. Then I used a remaining strip of green and cut a tiny scalloped oval for a tiny missing you and realized the proportion was off. That left me with two sentimentless cards. I looked at my colored scraps and had a voila moment – I took two wide strips of the rose and two of the green, adhered them side by side on a piece of cardstock and cut a larger oval from each color. Not perfect, but not terrible. This was a learning experience. I will not forget that step again.
