OSW (One Sheet Wonder) Template for 12"x12" Double-sided DSP and sample cards

I've been working on OSW (One Sheet Wonder) Template for 12"x12" Double-sided DSP and made sample cards for my OWH cardmaking group.  I have a class tomorrow for them to create OWH card kits. 

I came up with this basic template to make eight cards along with several variations that you can make more out of it.  You will need to first cut in 5"x12", the second cut in 5"x12" and the rest will be 2"x12".  Then go by the cutting diagram. 

This is a draft that you will see my handwriting after many whiteouts.  I will work on my computer to get nicer drawing. 

Tip:  Punch out the focal image mat from the base layer that will be covered by dsp anyway.

Hope this will give some inspiration whoever wants to try.


UPDATE:  Please click the template to open a new window with bigger clear picture.



















Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I've seen others do this, but yours is the best. The finished cards don't all look alike, there's so many variations and I can't wait to try it! Thank you!

  3. Awesome Post Seongsook!!! Thank you so much for sharing! By the way, I use the punch out the solid focal image from your solid layer technique all the time, and I actually think I picked it up from YOU a few years ago. :)

  8. I love that you made all these wonderful cards from one sheet. I will see if I can print off the samples because I can't read the dimensions and it gets blurrier the larger it gets. Great idea! TFS!

  9. i remember this from many years ago and thought how cool it is...but never went beyond that! i just cut out a sheet to see all the pieces and love all the cards i can get! i'm guessing in the 3x3 card, you also cut out the smaller square from the 3x3 piece since the blue mat will cover the hole?
    i also send cards in to OWH.....where are you in sac? i am in c.h.! i'll be subscribing to your blog now....

  12. Thank you for sharing! I've always loved OSW projects and your cards are beautiful! My mojo has been down w/ the stress of "end of the year" stuff with the kiddos! This is something I know I can sit and do and feel productive and will feel so happy to see my box for OWH fill up! Thanks for the inspiration :)

  15. I saw this through OWH and loved the idea. At the time, most of my DPs were single sided so I thought about using 2 well contrasting papers so that I'd end up with 16 cards. Yesterday I happened upon a stock of new papers at a shop and most of the packs were doubled sided. I just made my first set of cards. They are amazing. Thanks for the inspiration!

  17. This will certainly help me!! I have "saved" (aka: hoarded!) a LOT of paper because I didn't know what to do with & it was so pretty! Now I can spread that "prettiness" around! Thanks for sharing!!

  21. This is a fabulous tutorial! I was so inspired when I found it Friday (mentioned on Craft Test Dummies site). I used 2 one-sided sheets so my results were a little different but I got 12 cards with extra pieces. I also shared this with my mom and she was inspired too.
    Thank you for sharing this great information and for what you do for Operation Write Home.

  22. Goodness!!!!! This is awesome indeed, I'm in awe at how many wonderful cards can be done with just one sheet of 12x12 DSP. What a wonderful way to use all of it, simply fabulous. I'm a new recruit for the OWH organization and I'm very thrilled to be able to participate in sending hand made cards to all our Troops who are working so hard to preserve our freedom. Thank you so much for this wonderful and super useful template.
