One-sheet wonders

The new edition of Simply Cards & Papercraft is published this week so I am going to share one of the cards that I was commissioned to create for last months edition.

I made five cards and a matching box using one 12x12" piece of double-sided patterned paper and I have to say I really enjoyed making them and I think I will be doing this again in the future.


I used one sheet of double-sided paper from the Echo Park Happy Easter collection and some blue card stock.


I cut out the sentiment with my Spellbinders Belly Band One die and attached it to the card with some pink seam binding.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafting from the Heart Challenge 100 - Always Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion Challenge 300 - Always Anything Goes

I love sentiment only cards. I've got 3 boxes full of beautiful DPs and some of them just do not require any image but are better left as main feature along with a sentiment. The papers you've used are such papers, the can stand alone and be the beauty.
