On Monday I showed you how you can make a quick and easy card by letting your Designer Series Paper (DSP) do all the hard work. Here is another example for you. If you are anything like me, you purchase a lot of DSP but you don’t use a lot of it. There is something that keeps me from cutting into that first sheet that makes it so hard to do. As they say “just do it”. What good is this beautiful paper if it sits around uncut and unloved?
The Designer Series Paper I used is called Ornate Garden Specialty Paper. It is called Specialty because it has some gold foil designs on some of the patterns. I cut a piece of the Terracotta Tile colored paper 4″ x 5.5″ and layered it onto a Whisper White card base. Then I cut the flowered DSP 2.5″ x 3.75″ and layered that onto a piece of 2.75″ x 4″ Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment “heartfelt” (from the stamp set called Well Said) using Memento Black in onto a piece of Terracotta Tile cardstock and then the “thank you” sentiment (from the stamp set called Peaceful Moments) in Terracotta Tile ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut both of them out using dies from the Tasteful Labels die set
It took me longer to decide which DSP to use then it took to make the card. So remember. Cut that Designer Series Paper and use it! That is what it is for.
