With the current promotion for July being 15% off selected Designer Series Paper (DSP) I thought I’d do a project that uses one of the selected DSP packs. I’ve chosen the Hand-Penned 12″ x 12″ DSP which features the new Pale Papaya In Colour along with 9 other colours.
I created two designs using the same cutting technique of the Basic White as shown in the photos below.
The Basic White measures 2 1/2″ x 13.1cm and has been cut on an angle. I decided to give the inside edge a mat (in Soft Succulent) and this piece of cardstock measured 2 5/8″ x 13.1cm. You only need a strip of DSP – I cut mine to 5cm x 13.1cm. It then has a base mat of Soft Succulent measuring 9.3cm x 13.1cm. The card base is Pale Papaya.
The flowers are from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set and come with a coordinating punch – Flowers and Leaves. You can buy the stamp set and punch as a bundle – a saving of 10%. I used the Light & Dark Pale Papaya Stampin Blends to colour my flowers. The ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment comes from the Pansy Patch stamp set. To finish off my cards I added some Genial Gems – these gems coordinate perfectly with the Hand-Penned Suite.
Check back on Friday for another card using this DSP.
Until then …
