One Sheet Wonder Cards

While I was hopping around the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop, I found this super cool tutorial by Seongsook. It is to make a host of cards using up a whole sheet of background paper. As soon as I saw it I immediately thought of one sheet of paper that I've had for a while. It was an impulse buy for me (which is very rare). Also, I bought it at a scrapbooking store (which is also very rare). I just thought it was so pretty, but I didn't have anything to use it for. So, I grabbed it and started cutting. Here are my finished cards. I used the Cricut to cut out the shapes, and I used some of my old petite perks stamps for the sentiments:

The CTMH colors I used to coordinate with the paper were Crystal Blue and Olive. I also got an extra CAS card out of the extra square. I like it.

Materials used:
Paper: Cosmo Cricket (not CTMH)
Cardstock: Olive, Crystal Blue
Card bases: Colonial White Bulk
Stamps: Retired Petite Perks
Ink: Cocoa, Crystal Blue, Olive
Tools: 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Artiste Cricut Cartridge, scallop scissors (not CTMH)
Other: Prima flowers (not CTMH), Slate Epoxy Bubbles
