Spiced Paisley One-Sheet Wonder

In an attempt to get on top of some birthday cards for the year, I made a One-Sheet Wonder using the fabulous new stamp set, Spiced Paisley. This set is perfect for a OSW as the images look good overlapped  and there are lots of them.

The colour combo came from the Colour Coach: Chocolate Chip, Pool Party, Wild Wasabi, with the addition of So Saffron as I felt I needed another pale colour. Happily, I also had a big stack of So Saffron card blanks, left over from Make & Takes over the years. Some of the corners were slightly damaged but no problem – that’s what the Corner Rounder is for!

The words all come from Happiest of Birthdays - this is a hostess set so you can only get your hands on it by hosting a party or placing a qualifying (£150) order. It's well worth taking the time to hold a party as you'll have lots of fun with friends, make a project and, if the party total reaches £150, you'll get £25 to spend anywhere in the catalogue, including on our exclusive hostess products.  

I couldn't believe how quickly I rustled up nine cards – and now I’m set for the first nine birthdays of the year! Want a One-Sheet Wonder class? You only have to ask!
