One Sheet Wonder - edited at bottom of post

Because of my upcoming out of state move - last week was my last club :( here is Southern Cal. after 8 years of club :(  Very bitter sweet - these ladies are great -and hopefully we'll get to stamp together again.  So I wanted them to do something a little special and thought a set of cards using the OSW technique would be just the ticket.  This is such a fun technique. Soon I'll share the diagram for cutting the pieces - but now just want to share the four cards we made -
And then to complete the project we put the cards and envelopes in a clear plastic box and finished it off with a matching belly band.  The ladies used a few different designs of the SAB Best Day Ever DSP.  So you can see the cards above used one design and the box below used a different design.  But they all looked great.  You can also tell I took the picture below at night in bad lighting - the colors are a bit washed out - sorry!  But hopefully you get the idea.
The 1" strip of DSP was not long enough to go completely around the box this way, so it is adhered to each side of the square layers on the back.  If you're doing this you want to not make it too tight that you cannot slide it off, or too loose that it just falls down - so be careful with that part.  I love making coordinated sets with OSW - as they look great when they are finished - perfect to use or give as a gift.  See you soon!!! ~Maureen
Hi all - after posting I found this "better" picture of the set all put together - here you can see more true colors - nice huh!!
