One Sheet Wonder Tutorial!

Today....A Tutorial!
Hi everyone! Today I am going to show you how to make 8 cards from one sheet of 12" x 12" patterned paper. This is a fun and easy way to make a batch of cards to get your stash replenished! I've included a video tutorial at the end of this post.
For my image and sentiment I am using the High Hopes stamp called "Smiling Flowers" and the sentiment "Sunshine and Sunflowers" that you can find over at One Crazy Stamper.
Here's a "map" of how you will cut your 12" x 12" piece of paper.
I started by first stamping 8 images and sentiments onto Copic friendly paper and coloured them in with my Copic Sketch markers. I then fussy cut the images out.
Next you will need to cut your patterned paper following the "map".
I decided I wanted to layer yellow cardstock under my patterned paper as well. 
You will need:
8 A2 card bases (5.5" x 4.24")
5  cardstock pieces @ 4 2/8" x 5 3/8"
3 cardstock pieces @ 42/8" x 1 5/8"
8 images
8 sentiments
patterned paper cut to the "map" sizes
embellishments of your choice

While I was filming the video and took my pictures I decided to also makes layering pieces for the other 3 strips and white cardstock to put on the inside of each card base. So you will also need:
8 pieces of white cardstock  @ 5" x 3 3/4"
3 cardstock pieces @ 4 2/8" x 1 7/8"
Here's what the paper looks like when cut. (sorry it's not the right pattern, I forgot to take a picture of this before I glued them all together).
After you have everything cut and ready to go it's just a matter of gluing all the papers together, and then adhering them to your card base. You can choose to embellish your cards or leave them plain. I added a few black bows and enamel dots. Of course for me no card is complete until I add a bit of glimmer, so I added some clear Wink of Stella to my flower centers.
I'm just showing the inside of one card so you can see how I added white cardstock so that you have a place to write a note or you could stamp another sentiment inside if you wish.
Copics used:
Large Flower: Y13, Y15, Y17, R20
Left flower: E40, E41, E43, YR02, R20
Right flower: Y00, Y08, R20
Stems: YG61, YG63, YG67

Hope you've enjoyed this tutorial and that it inspired you to go make your own "one sheet wonder"!
Happy Crafting!
