One sheet wonder

Yesterday you saw the stationery box, today I show you some of the cards that I put in it. I found a template online somewhere (and I can't remember where) for the "one sheet wonder". You take one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper and cut into different shapes to make 10 different cards.
Even though it gives you examples of layouts for your cards I've discovered that I have no sense of design at all. Yes I had the layout, I had the shapes but what do I add to them after that. I got through 5 of the cards and the other 5 are still waiting to be finished.
Here are the 5 I did.


Whenever I make cards I always feel like either they are lacking something or too overdone. There never seems to be a happy medium with me.

Your cards are so pretty. I love the one with the butterfly and the little doggy. So cute!
Oh, and I love your new header too!

No sense of design???? Who are you kidding? These look GREAT!

Your stationery vs stationary post yesterday made my morning!
And if those are lacking I know I will be embarrassed when I show the ones I have created! Nothing like sponsoring a project when you don't know how to make cards:)

You're being too hard on yourself. I like all the cards. I'll bet Duke does too.

Have a great weekend. My best to Duke. :)

Какая прелесть. Милые открытки!!!

I like them - especially the last one...

I think they are great. I would love to put some of them on our auctions that we have for cats and people that are in bad shape. I think they are terrific. They sure are better than what you buy in the darn stores.

You're so silly! Your cards are perfect! Mine are totally lacking something compared to yours and that's talent! :) I love the dog one!

Sher said...

Love all the cards but the butterfly is my favorite. Bubba said to tell you that he likes the last one but nothing is as cool as your new topper.
