One Sheet Wonder and the Silhouette

I had been using a one sheet wonder pattern that was created by Seongsook Duncan.  She makes wonderful cards for Operation Write Home.  The one sheet wonder (OSW) is a template for cutting a 12X12 piece of double sided designer paper to minimize scraps. I decided I wanted to adjust the dimensions just a little so I came up with this:

I decided that this might be easier to cut on the Silhouette.  I made a cut file of the template and it worked great!  I was able to use every scrap of the sheet of paper. 
Here's the results:

The paper is a collection from Crate Paper called Restoration Collection.  I found it a Tuesday Morning.  It had 16 sheets of double sided designer paper, borders, stickers and die cuts.  I used various stamps for the sentiments.  These will all find their way to Operation Write Home.
Thanks to Our Daily Bread Designs for their monthly challenges.

  2. Hi Andrea, I am trying to make a bunch of cards as quickly as possible for a silent auction benefit. We are trying to raise the funds necessary to send a very sick little girl to a specialist hospital halfway across the country. All the doctors here in the Midwest don't know what to do for her anymore. Would you please share your Silhouette cut file with me? I did one set of cards yesterday cutting by hand and I know it would go 10 times faster with my Silhouette. I have not learned how to make my own template in the Silhouette software yet....plan on working on it though. Could you send me the file?
