100 th Post and OSW free template!!

hello there,

               I am really happy to let you know that I have reached a little milestone(is it really?!).Yes,this is my 100th post and  I thank each and every soul that supported,encouraged and helped me in achieving this!So, do we have a reason to celebrate?! Yes or No.. but I am giving u all a freebie with this post! Got your attention?!!Keep reading.. :)

         Now , you ask me what this that..?It is a template!!I am introducing you to an age old technique called One Sheet Wonder.When I mean age old, I mean it, as they were popular, even before the introduction of pattern paper.Yes..when there were only rubber stamps.!!

   This technique allows you to create 8-10 different cards in a short period of time by designing one sheet of paper and cutting it into different sized shapes to use on your solid base cards

   I wanted more Christmas cards for my exhibition and I did not want to spend more on it as I cannot use it till next Christmas, if not sold. Also I was running short of time.. So this technique came as my savior. I saw some templates from splitcoaststampers and I designed on my own.It was easy and I created 9 A6 cards out of it!.Here is my template.. Just download and print it on the back of ur PP/stamped paper and feel free to use it.. But please give the due credits..

(Sorry abt the lines being so light)
     To make it easier, I did not stamp the background, but used a designer paper with Christmas colors(origin not known).I cut along the markings and since I knew the layout of the cards and what will go into each card, it was a lot easier for me.. It took me 3 hrs to finish these cards, without a paper trimmer...:))
I had bought some Christmas stickers and used it here.. so that made sure there were images too!

         Here are the cards for you to watch and enjoy!Just Co-ordinate the card nos with the numbers in the template.


OSW6- some foam embellishments




     If I had inspired any of you to make cards in this OSW technique, I feel really happy abt it.. If u make them, do share that with me.. Any doubts please leave it in the comments.. I will be happy to answer!
