My card today is one that has been getting around the Internet of late, well not my card but others like it. It was created for a birthday last month.
I cut a piece of Playful Palette DSP to size & decided where I wanted the fold to be. Once I had decided on the fold, I cut in about 2″ & simply folded & scored the DSP from the middle of the cut to each corner, ensuring that the fold was nice & sharp.
The DSP was the layered onto a piece of Card (which I didn’t realise at the time is a piece of my wedding card stock, thinking it was Cucumber Crush Card) & then onto the Base Card – Basic Black.
I stamped the large butterfly from Watercolor Wings onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla Card in Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum & Memento Tuxedo Back Inks before cutting out with the matching Bold Butterfly Framelits & adhering to the centre fold of the Card Front with a Mini Glue Dot.
The greeting is from the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set & was stamped onto a piece of scrap Very Vanilla Card in Cucumber Crush Ink, the frame in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, punched with the matching Duet Banner Punch before popping onto the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I love this DSP but was finding it hard to use. Now that I’ve cut into it, I seem to heading for this Stack all the time.
Don’t forget, this is a great way to use up some of that DSP sitting on your shelves in the cupboard. Why not head over to our Pretty Pattern Papers Page to see more ways of using DSP. The Tutorials are also a great source for SU! Demonstrators who hold Classes, Workshops or Demonstrations.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
