Welcome to week 20 of the Heart of Christmas just 2 weeks remaining after today, so make sure you hop around all those participating and go back through the weeks of the Heart of Christmas so that you get all that last minute inspiration before life gets too busy in December.

Today I have for you a One Sheet Wonder as I needed a few Christmas cards this week for my Church ladies as we have our Christmas breakup from my Thursday night group. We were to have it last week but I was in Sydney having fun at OnStage so we are having it this week. I thought a One Sheet Wonder would help me get a lot of cards made quickly and Stampin' Up! has such gorgeous DSP the cards practically make themselves.

So I went on a little bit of a hunt for a different template to ones I had seen before and to see if they would fit with the sentiments that I had. I found this one on a blog by Kate Deignan.

I decided to use the gorgeous Fitting florets DSP.

Once I had chosen the DSP and cut it up I layered it all up on to Evening Evergreen card bases and a Soft Succulent layer.

I adjusted the DSP layers just slightly so they had a little bit of a border with the soft succulent but the template was my starting point.

From there I used 2 stamp sets, the Framed & Festive and the Sweet Candy Canes for my sentiments. I used the dies from from the Candy Cane Dies, Framed Florets Dies and the Stylish shapes dies.

I have used the Sentiment for 9 of the card from the Framed and Festive stamp set and cut it out with the Stylish shaped dies and then with the Brushed Metallic cardstock I have cut a layer and popped them up on dimensionals.

This is the 2 full piece of DSP. I have used Basic White, Soft Sea Foam and Sahara Sand for the foliage under the sentiment.

This design uses one of the 2 1/2 inch and the 2 inch piece of DSP.

Most of the designs have a piece of DSP like this on the bottom of the card. You could add a little bit of decoration or ...

You could add a little to both side of the sentiment.

Now just for fun cut one of the pieces on the diagonal and I stamped the sentiment on the Soft Succulent card stock and cut out a candy cane from the Sweet Christmas DSP added some of the foliage and a red ribbon and you have another card.

How good is a One Sheet Wonder for getting loads of cards quickly?!! You have created some great cards here with this lovely DSP. The addition of the candy canes, really adds a lovely pop of colour and I love how you stamped the sentiment along the edge of the DSP. Wonderful cards, Sharon.
