Any paper crafter has a few sheets (or more than a few) of "special" paper. These are papers we love so much we cannot bear to cut into them. One such sheet I had was an 8-year old sheet of hydrangea paper from Paper Pizazz. I love hydrangeas and purple, so I had to buy this paper. Then, even after a cousin's wedding theme was hydrangeas, I couldn't make myself use it. Today, I saw a lovely card on the OWH Facebook page that seemed like it would nicely showcase a pretty piece of patterned paper. I chose purple cardstock as my base and the hydrangea paper was just perfect. So, I used it. All. It yielded 6 cards like the one shown below plus a bonus seventh card that used the scraps I had left from cutting the six card fronts out of the paper.
