Broadway Bound One Sheet Wonder!

Hello and welcome to today’s cards, which are made from a single sheet of Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper! What makes it a specialty paper? The Gold Foil!! So, for each sheet of this DSP, one side is a regular design and the other has gold foil in the design!! I don’t know about you, but I make and send birthday cards all year long to family and friends, so with the new catalog launch it was time to get a new birthday stamp set and designer paper. I chose the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and Broadway Bound DSP and think they work together great! Yes, I know that there is a coordinating stamp and dies for the DSP, but I wanted something different!

So as I set out to create some birthday cards, I thought I would try something different, decided on “one sheet wonder”, went on Pinterest, and found this particular layout from Traci Cornelius. I’m not gonna lie, when started cutting the DSP I almost started panicking! Was I doing this right? Is the paper facing the right way? How am I going to make cards out of all these pieces?? What was I thinking?? After taking a deep, cleansing breath and confirming the DSP was facing the right way (we’ve all done it, cut the DSP design in the wrong direction), I continued cutting the DSP. Here is the layout and I also made a template on a leftover piece of cardboard:

I wanted to make a template that I could easily refer back to and not try to remember where I found it at. Below is a picture of each card I made, inside and out, with a brief description:

The base layer is Lovely Lipstick cardstock (4” x 5 ¼”) and embossed with the Subtle Dynamic TIEF

The sentiment is embossed in Black Embossing Powder, cut out with the Tailored Tag Punch, Black Metallic Thread (retired) is adhered to the back, and then popped up with dimensionals

The balloons are in Gold Foil, Lovely Lipstick, and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock using the Balloon Bouquet Punch, Happy Birthday is in Gold Embossing Powder, a piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine is tied on each balloon, and then use a large Gold Faceted Gem to adhere the twine together

This final card is an Angle Fold Over Card, the base is Gray Granite cardstock

The base layer is Lovely Lipstick cardstock, 4” x 5 ¼”, and cut diagonally. The diagonal 3 ½” x 5” DSP is layered on the cardstock and then adhered to the card base.

I used the leftover pieces of DSP, Gold Foil Sheet, Whisper White cardstock to cut the circles, 2 ½” (Layering Circles), 2 ¼”, 2”, 1 ¾”, 1 ½”, and 1 ¼” Circle Punches. The sentiment is heat embossed in Gold Embossing Powder and the rest is stamped in Basic Black, Lovely Lipstick, and Lemon Lime Twist inks. A piece of Black Satin Ribbon is tied in a bow and adhered with glue dots. The biggest and smallest circles are popped up with dimensional on the top flap and the other circle is adhered with tear tape on the bottom flap

The inside sentiment is stamped in Lovely Lipstick, Lemon Lime Twist, and Gray Granite inks

Can you believe ONE sheet of DSP made 7 cards?? Since 99.5% of my cards are mailed, I tried to not make them too elaborate that you couldn’t just stick them in an envelope! So, just cutting some DSP and getting out of your “comfort zone of creativity” can be fun! Stay tuned for my next blog post, I am going to find another 12” x 12” one sheet wonder design for more birthday cards!!
