FAST FIVE FRIDAY - Christmas in July - Day 8

This Fast Five is coming to you over the next few days. I chose to do a One Sheet Wonder, using a pattern for 12x12 I designed several years ago.

When I had finished cutting out all of the pieces, I modified some of them as they were auditioned against the card front. I still wound up with 18 cards but some of the pieces were trimmed to fit the 4.25" x 5.5" rather than the 5x7 they were initially designed for.

We are winding up our week with the Carols of Christmas:

After cutting the One Sheet, I cut 18 card bases from Whisper White in a combination of side fold (scored at the 4.25) or top fold (scored at the 5.5) 

Then I then chose the Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green cardstock that coordinate with the Be Merry Designer Series Paper.  You can buy the coordinating cardstock pack that includes both the Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green as well as the Thick Whisper White.  I cut half of the mats (4" x 5.25") from each of the Cherry and Green. You'll see I turned some vertical and some horizontal. 

Then I auditioned all of the One Sheet pieces to the mats to see how best to utilize all of the pieces and trim where needed. I kept the Carols of Christmas sentiments in mind... as to which Stitched Framelits I would use where.  

Once I was finished, here's the five cards I came up with for this week:

Each of these cards could be tuned up by adding any of the die-cuts from the Carols of Christmas die set but Fast Five Friday is all about simplicity. I'd love to see what you do with the one-sheet. I don't have a PDF but I think the dimensions are clear enough in the picture above. If not, email me and I'll see what I can do about conversion.
