Hi crafters! Hope your week is going well so far. We’ve had some glorious warm weather here in South West Victoria although unfortunately it looks like it’ll be coming to an end tomorrow afternoon at least for a few days. Today I wanted to show you a card I’ve made using elements of the Peony Garden Suite. This card will form part of a set of cards created using the One Sheet Wonder Technique.
One Sheet Wonder Templates
If you search Pinterest for One Sheet Wonder (OSW) card templates you’ll find a variety of options available. They vary depending on the size of your paper, the shapes you want to cut out and the number of cards you want to make from one sheet of paper. Or you can always come up with one on your own. For today’s card the OSW template I used came from Artful Adventures. I pinned this link years ago and never got around to giving it a go so I had to change that!
Check out the video below for full instructions on how to put this card together. I also included instructions on how I put together the 3D peony cut from the Peony Dies. It’s a slightly different order to the way I’ve seen others put it together and I find it a little easier to glue together this way. Let me know what you think either way!

Finishing off the Card
After I finished the video I decided to use Shimmery Crystal Effects to add some water droplets to the peony flower and leaves. I also added a single drop on either side of the sentiment for a bit of subtle bling.
I also stamped a sentiment and additional peony flower inside the card.
And there you have it. The first of 14 cards planned to be created over the next couple of weeks from one sheet of the beautiful Peony Garden DSP. Let me know what you think in the comments.
