I had a reader contact me recently, wanting to know if she could have access to old issues of  SheetLoad of Cards. How flattering! Someone remembered my little ezine. :) I decided to upload ZIP files of the issues to Drop Box, in case anyone else is interested. :)

SheetLoad Design Team

Even though you will no longer see new creations here from the SheetLoad design team members, they will still be creating and posting on their blogs for themselves and the teams they design for.

I hope you will continue to visit each of their blogs and help me thank them for their time here at SheetLoad of Cards!!! I really couldn't have put the eZine together without them.

Simple Special Stunning - December '09

The purpose of "Simple Special Stunning" is to show how each issue of SheetLoad can be adapted for papercrafters of all levels. Whether it is sticking exactly to the sketch, or adding some extra bling.

This cards in this month's edition were created by Denise Wallace and feature the sketch from our December '09 issueof SheetLoad of Cards.




• Followed sketch, but only used one (1) cardstock and patterned paper for everything else.




• Sponged all edges with Stampin' Up! Close to Cocoa ink
• Added shrink plastic sentiment
• Added vellum swirls around the bow
• 'Fluff' was added to Santa's cap and some sparkle to his beard





• In addition to all of the 'special' additions pearl flourishes and faux snow on the snowflake were added.
**To make the pearl flourishes, Denise placed them on a transparency, cut them out, then adhered to the card.
