Welcome to this month's blog hop featuring Designer Series Paper (DSP). If you are not familiar with the Stampin' Up! term DSP, it is our 12x12" patterned paper. All our paper coordinates with our colors and most times, with a stamp, punch or die cut set. One of my favorite DSP stacks is a specialty DSP because of the foil on the images called Peaceful Place. This paper is full of silver foil and is all black, white and gray. Let's take a look at my card.
I have done this style card in the past and it a favorite to show off both sides of the designer series paper. The DSP is what flips open which you will see in the second photo below.
It is hard to capture the foil on the trees so here is another angle. The trees are die cut from a sheet of the Peaceful Place specialty DSP that is a dark gray (basic gray) and has silver and white splotches all over it. When I die cut the tress, I think it makes it look like they have snow on them.
- Card base is a piece of Basic White 4-1/4 x 5-1/2
- Layer a piece of Basic Black that is 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 on top of Basic White
- DSP is 4 x 10-1/2 then scored at 5-1/4
- Tip: I cut a 4 x 12 piece of DSP, folded it in half then cut that folded piece to 4 x 5-1/4"
- Tip: watch the direction of the inside (opposite side) pattern
- fold on score and adhere on top of Basic Black
- stamp greeting
- adhere a couple of sequins
- For the inside, cut a piece Basic White to 3-3/4 x 5
- Stamp your sentiment in Memento Black a little towards the top
- Cut strip of DSP 1 x 3-3/4 and adhere to bottom on white
- Die cut 3 trees from Cabin Dies and add
I think the last step adds so much to the inside. I love adding an element like that, where you die cut Designer Series Paper for extra detail to the cut images. My full list of supplies are below for easy reference and shopping.
Well, I hope you like my card project and you will join us for our next Blog Hop on December 1, 2021.
